High Energy Neutrinos Are Coming From Supermassive Black Holes

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.

A first 'snapshot' of neutrinos emitted by the sun

New results from Borexino, the only detector on Earth capable of observing the entire spectrum of solar neutrino simultaneously, which has now been accomplished.

IceCube turns the planet into a giant neutrino detector

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.

After 43 years, gentle touch of a neutrino is finally observed

We’re actually able to detect a bump from the lightest particle we know of.

Over 1,000 scientist create the biggest facility to study neutrinos

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.

Cosmic Neutrino Detector Reveals Clues About Ghostly Particle Masses

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.

New detector at South Pole shows early success at neutrino hunting

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.

Big, beautiful photos of insane physics experiments chasing the 'ghost particle'

Scientists call it the 'ghost particle'. Meet the neutrino, which scientists hope will help them answer dozens of critical questions about the Universe.

Discovered: ultra-elusive, super-energetic neutrinos from far-away galaxy

The capture of a burst of high-energy neutrinos from a far-off galaxy heralds a new era in astrophysics.

First results from Daya Bay find new kind of neutrino transformation

The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment, a multinational collaboration operating in the south of China, today reported the first results of its search for the last, most elusive piece of a long-standing puzzle: how is it that neutrinos can appear to vanish as they travel? The surprising answer opens a gateway to a new understanding of fundamental physics and may eventually solve the riddle of why there is far more ordinary matter than antimatter in the universe today.

Underwater neutrino detector will be second-largest structure ever built

The hunt for elusive neutrinos will soon get its largest and most powerful tool yet: the enormous KM3NeT telescope, currently under development by a consortium of 40 institutions from ten European countries. Once completed KM3NeT will be the second-largest structure ever made by humans, after the Great Wall of China, and taller than the Burj Khalifa in Dubai… but submerged beneath 3,200 feet of ocean!
