Something seen under the Antarctic ice

Post by dyqik » Wed Mar 10, 2021 6:01 pm

A W- boson created by a high energy cosmic ray antineutrino seen by IceCube.

IceCube detection of a high-energy particle proves 60-year-old theory

Basically the trifecta of physics: particle physics, astronomy and really big experiments in exotic places :)

Yeah it'll start out like that but it will still end with Kurt Russell running amok with a flamethrower while not apparently breathing.

Any excuse for THE definitive version
It's meta, so it is allowed.
