Supermassive black holes are gravitational powerhouses. When hot gas surrounding them is squeezed by gravity and electromagnetic fields, it can emit tremendous amounts of energy, including high-energy neutrinos.
Curtin University researchers are part of an international project that will use a huge underwater neutrino telescope at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea to help explain some of the most powerful and mysterious events in the universe.
New results from Borexino, the only detector on Earth capable of observing the entire spectrum of solar neutrino simultaneously, which has now been accomplished.
There are three types of neutrinos in the Standard Model, the blueprint of particle physics. Experimental results add evidence for the existence of a fourth, more mysterious type - the sterile neutrino.
The IceCube detector, located at the South Pole, has now confirmed a part of the Standard Model of physics, which describes the properties of fundamental particles and their interactions.
We’re actually able to detect a bump from the lightest particle we know of.
The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) will count with the support of 1,000 scientists and engineers from different parts of the world to study the properties of the neutrino.
The new results support evidence of a strange symmetry in measurements of one neutrino mass. In particle physics, symmetries often indicate underlying physics that scientists haven't yet unearthed.
The Askaryan Radio Array team recently published a performance review of the first two stations to come online, showing great potential for the detector to push forward understanding of the cosmos once it's fully operational.
Antimatter is at the heart of one of the great mysteries in modern physics — why our universe has stuff in it.
Scientists call it the 'ghost particle'. Meet the neutrino, which scientists hope will help them answer dozens of critical questions about the Universe.
The capture of a burst of high-energy neutrinos from a far-off galaxy heralds a new era in astrophysics.
Fermilab outside Chicago will soon begin its Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), and what it hopes to accomplish is as brilliant and confusing as the book of its namesake.
Basic physics suggests that electrons are essentially immortal. A fascinating experiment recently failed to overthrow this fundamental assumption.
