Identified as neutrinos, these tiny subatomic particles carry minimal mass and lack electric charge. Often referred to as “phantom particles,” this is due to their ability to glide without leaving a mark through gases, dust, and even celestial bodies. High-energy neutrinos traverse indiscriminately across the universe, relaying details about far-off locations. Yet, the origins of these particles have usually been enigmatic.
A fresh perspective of our galaxy, the Milky Way, is being constructed from the enigmatic particles known as neutrinos. While the current representation remains indistinct and unfinished, the accruing data promises to sharpen the image and shed light on cosmic phenomena like expanding supernova remnants that have remained enigmatic to conventional telescope observations.
