A team of scientists has discovered the state that occurs when a giant star is destroyed when it enters the range of a black hole, in a new study that sheds light on super-energy cosmic rays.Researchers affiliated with more than 20 international institutions, including New York University and the German Research Center (DESY), studied one of the smallest elements in the universe, a “neutrino” (a neutrino is an elementary particle with a mass much smaller than the mass of an electron, and it has no electrical charge), which are subatomic particles that are Produced on Earth only at very colossal speeds.

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.”
