Source of cosmic neutrinos detected!

The neutrino telescope IceCube has detected a neutrino in coincidence with high-energy gamma radiation for the first time.

The source was determined to be a blazar, a black hole in the center of a far away galaxy emitting a huge amount of mass and radiation in a pointed direction.

Amongst others, the newspaper Westfälische Nachrichten from Münster reported on this discovery.
