Antarctic mysterious particles introduced scientists to a screeching halt

Over Antarctica discovered new species of neutrino.

A Number of “impossible” particles was discovered during the study of the physical properties of the sixth continent with the Antarctic impulse transient antenna experiment (ANITA), according to the portal . According to the researchers, for the first time discovered a mysterious particle, the discovery of new types of neutrinos over Antarctica can cause death accepted physical paradigm, which is already bursting at the seams. So why do new types of neutrinos can declare the end of modern physics?

Neutrinos in Antarctica

— the weakest particles, which we know; they are difficult to detect and they have almost no mass. These tiny particles pass through our planet and occasionally collide with protons, neutrons, and electrons that make up our bodies and everything that surrounds them.

Discovered in 2018 particles neutrinos in buried in the Antarctic ice IceCube Observatory, do not conform to its expected behavior in any of the standard model particles. Despite the fact that the particles are very similar to ultra-high neutrino from them, they are distinguished by a number of oddities. Thus, ultra-high neutrinos can pass through the Earth, which suggests that in the cold Antarctic sky directs the flow of another previously unexplored substances.

We Know that many that came to us from outer space result from the interaction of cosmic rays with microwave background — a faint afterglow from the Big Bang. The result of this collaboration is the launch of high-energy particles that can be noted already mentioned above, ANITA and IceCube. New types of neutrinos, indicating the existence of ultra high energy can originate from the so-called neutrino cannons or space boosters. According to the experts, similar objects can be blazey, active galactic nuclei or gamma-ray bursts and neutron stars. Proof of this was the opening in 2018 of the blazar emitting streams of high-energy neutrinos in the center of a distant galaxy.

Detected the blazar at the centre of a distant galaxy is capable of emitting streams of neutrinos seen on Earth

Whatever it was, АNITA catches only the most extreme high-energy neutrinos, and if the flying up of the particles come from cosmic accelerators neutrino of the standard physical model, it is likely that they could be easily detected by the detectors lower energy IceCube. However, this has not yet happened. The most logical explanation in this case may be that modern power ANITA and IceCube do not allow us to look further and see what are actually found in the particles. Scientists hope that the creation of neutrino detectors of the new generation can help us to unravel this mystery, which may be directly linked to or its varieties. In any case, any one in the future explanation threatens to become truly revolutionary for modern science.
