A brief news summary from PhysicsWeb:

Could neutrinos destroy nuclear weapons? (May 13)
Physicists at the KEK laboratory in Japan and the University of Hawaii
have proposed a "futuristic but not necessarily impossible technology"
that would use an ultra-high energy neutrino beam to destroy nuclear
weapons. However, the researchers stress that the method is well beyond
the capabilities of current particle accelerators

So does this pie in the sky deserve to be hyped? Oh yes – it

substantial R&D and financial investment by many nations (H Sugawara et
