Researcher discusses IceCube neutrino sensor array

About 3.7 billion years ago, when life was just beginning to take hold on this planet, a neutrino was thrown out of a blazar and launched towards Earth and it just landed. The ghostly particle was detected by the IceCube Neutrino Observatory in Antarctica and traced back to its distant point of origin with NASA's Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope, helping to confirm the most distant source of neutrinos ever identified...
