Neutrino deposit discovered for the first time

An international team of astrophysicists, led by staff from the Universities of Würzburg and Geneva (JMU and UNIGE), has identified a neutrino deposit for the first time. The findings of the work were published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters.

Until now, the exact origin of the neutrino has remained in question. However, with the help of the latest research carried out at the IceCube neutrino observatory in Antarctica and the BZCat blazar catalog, it was possible to prove that neutrinos are born in blazars – the cores of galaxies fed by supermassive black holes. To do this, scientists have created a program that evaluates the relationship between neutrinos and blazars. The results showed that the astrophysicists’ assumptions were correct.

In April, a group of astronomers from around the world announced the discovery of a rare millisecond pulsar, represented as a double neutron star. According to researchers, this luminary was formed after a supernova explosion with the capture of electrons.
