NASA’s Fermi Traces Source of Cosmic Neutrino to Monster Black Hole

Quote

For the first time ever, scientists using NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope have found the source of a high-energy neutrino from outside our galaxy. This neutrino traveled 3.7 billion years at almost the speed of light before being detected on Earth. This is farther than any other neutrino whose origin scientists can identify.

High-energy neutrinos are hard-to-catch particles that scientists think are created by the most powerful events in the cosmos, such as galaxy mergers and material falling onto supermassive black holes. They travel at speeds just shy of the speed of light and rarely interact with other matter, allowing them to travel unimpeded across distances of billions of light-years.

Scientist also released a strange message they received just a fraction of a second before the neutrino hit the Earth..

"Who the heck put that planet in my way?"

The lab is a mile beneath the South Pole?? That's amazing in itself...

Neutrinos can pass clean through the Earth and out the other side. Neutrino labs are deep underground to exclude other particles from interfering with the detectors.

Neutrinos are a natural product of radioactive decay and being of neutral charge they don't bond to anything so they pass on through.
