Latest Neutrinos Stories
The giant black hole at the center of the Milky Way may be producing mysterious particles called neutrinos. If confirmed, this would be the first time that scientists have traced neutrinos back to a black hole.
Daya Bay neutrino experiment publishes a new result on its first search for a "sterile" neutrino
Thanks to one of the most sensitive neutrino detectors on Earth, physicists have for the first time confirmed the existence of low-energy neutrinos created by the “keystone” proton-proton fusion process taking place in the core of the sun.
Using the ESA’s XMM-Newton and NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, astronomers have located a mysterious X-ray signal that could be produced by sterile neutrinos – particles that are a potential candidate for the abundant and essentially invisible substance known as dark matter.
Neutrinos are tiny, neutral elementary particles that, contrary to the standard model of physics, have been proven to have mass. One possible explanation for this mass could be that neutrinos are their own antiparticles, so-called Majorana particles.
Scientists at a massive underground particle detector in Antarctica called the IceCube South Pole Neutrino Observatory have detected high-energy neutrinos, ideal for the future of "extreme astronomy" because they can be used to detect the sources of cosmic rays and provide information about our universe's most violent and least-understood phenomena.
Albeit with much controversy, physicists are using ancient lead ingots from sunken ships in the study of dark matter in neutrinos. Archaeologists have gone on the offensive, expressing concerns over the destruction of underwater cultural heritage.
New research appearing in the latest edition of the journal Nature is casting doubts on currently accepted theories has to how the surface of a neutron star heats itself up.
Astronomers working with the IceCube Neutrino Observatory in Antarctica have announced that they have, for the first time, observed 28 very high-energy particle events, leading them to conclude that "the era of neutrino astronomy has begun.”
A pair of physicists hired to help lead particle and nuclear physics research in the new doctorate program at South Dakota School of Mines & Technology hold the promise of bringing the long-awaited
