More recently, NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) captured a unique image of the Earth’s sphere from the spacecraft’s starting point in lunar orbit. Researchers and scientists have discovered the existence of a high-energy neutrino resulting from the destruction of the star when it approaches the black hole, in a discovery that sheds light on the origins of the super-energy cosmic rays, which are the highest energy particles in the universe, according to the research published in the journal “Nature Astronomy”, a specialized scientific journal.
“The origin of high-energy cosmic neutrinos is unknown, mainly because of the difficulty in identifying them,” says scientist Siegret van Velzen, one of the lead authors of the research and a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Physics at New York University, commenting on the discovery. This result will be only the second time that high-energy neutrinos have been returned to their source.The new published research provided confirmation of the accuracy of this information. Specifically, its measurements showed the spatial coincidence of a high-energy neutrino and the light emitted after the destruction of a black hole (consuming a black hole of the star) of a giant star.
Scientists confirm that “monitoring the presence of neutrinos in this process also sheds light on a decades-old problem, which is the source and origin of the ultra-high-energy cosmic rays.”
