On 12 July 2018 Space.com reported:
Scientists have spotted a high-energy, incredibly tiny 'ghost' particle called a neutrino flying through Antarctic ice and traced its origins back to a specific blazar, they announced today, July 12. ... A neutrino is a subatomic particle just as tiny as an electron, but without any charge. Scientists know neutrinos have a tiny bit of mass, but they can't pin down exactly how little. The result is that neutrinos tend to give other matter the cold shoulder: They don't interact with their surroundings very often, which makes them difficult for scientists to spot.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
Nevertheless, they're everywhere -- your body is pummeled by about 100 trillion neutrinos every second. And scientists think the weird particles may hold the key to some of the biggest mysteries about the universe, including why matter won out over antimatter early after the Big Bang.
...The frustration motivated scientists to open IceCube, the only neutrino detector large enough to capture the incredibly high-energy particles born beyond our galaxy, in 2010.
