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.”
Neutrinos are the most elusive particles having extremely weak interactions with all other particles.
The first block of what will be the largest, most advanced neutrino experiment in North America is now being installed in Minnesota.
Within the heart of exploding stars, sparse halos of neutrinos exert a previously unrecognized influence on the physics of the explosion and may alter which elements can be forged by these violent events.
Scientists will be using IceCube, the world's largest telescope buried under the South Pole, to hunt for neutrinos.
A $300-plus million dollar deep sea observatory which will detect high-energy particles bombarding the Earth from outer space has just received priority funding from the European Union.
Search for ultra high energy neutrinos from space turns the moon into part of the 'detector'.
Physicists may see data as soon as late summer from the prototype for a $278 million science experiment in northern Minnesota that is being designed to find clues to some fundamental mysteries of the universe.
A project to fire neutrinos through the earth from Illinois to northern Minnesota is back on track because of U.S.
Dark matter could light up the first stars in the universe if the dark matter is made up of sterile neutrinos.
Supernova 1987a -- Supernova 1987a was a supernova in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a nearby dwarf galaxy. It occurred approximately 50 kiloparsecs from Earth, the closest supernova since Supernova 1604, which occurred in the Milky Way itself. The light from the supernova reached Earth on February 23, 1987. Its brightness peaked in May with a magnitude of about 3 and slowly declined in the following months. It was modern astronomers' first opportunity to see a supernova up close....
