IceCube sets strongest limits on galaxy clusters as potential neutrino sources
By Alisa King-Klemperer | | Research |
At present, one of the long-standing astronomical mysteries is the origin of cosmic rays, high-energy charged particles hurtling through space at the speed of light. Upon entering the atmosphere, they interact with atoms and produce an air shower of secondary particles, including nearly massless subatomic particles called neutrinos. Although very [...]
