An international team of scientists has found the first evidence of a source of high-energy cosmic neutrinos, ghostly subatomic particles that can travel unhindered for billions of light years from the most extreme environments in the universe to Earth. The observations, made by the IceCube Neutrino Observatory at the Amundsen–Scott South Pole Station and confirmed […]

McDonald lead the neutrino experiments, which demonstrated that neutrinos change their flavour and thus have mass. In 1962, Z. Maki, N. […]
