Extraterrestrial Neutrinos Found In South Pole May Solve Mysteries About Cosmic Particle Accelerators

According to the researchers, the IceCube observatory has detected 28 extremely high-energy particle events from outer space that can provide astronomers with an entirely new perspective on the universe. The high-energy neutrinos were found in data collected from May 2010 to May 2012.

“This is the first indication of very high-energy neutrinos coming from outside our solar system with energies [that are] more than one million times those observed in 1987 in connection with a supernova seen in the Large Magellanic Cloud,” Francis Halzen, the principal investigator of IceCube and a...
