Abstract

This paper summarizes the main recent results of the Borexino experiment, a liquid scintillator neutrino detector of unprecedented radiopurity currently running at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso in Italy. Particularly, the paper is focused on the precision measurement of the 7Be solar neutrino flux, on the search of its day-night modulation, and on the first detection of pep neutrinos. The paper also covers a recent measurement of the CNGS neutrinos speed made in May 2012. A short discussion about the forthcoming scientific program on solar neutrinos, geoneutrinos, and sterile neutrino searches is included at the end.
