Title Physicists Are Excited About Fresh Evidence for a New 'Sterile' Fundamental Particle Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet Gizmodo Media type Web Country/Territory United States Date 4/06/18 Description Neutrinos are ghostly, mysterious shape-shifters. New evidence bolsters the existence of an even ghostlier, “sterile” version of this strange particle.
There are three types of neutrinos in the Standard Model, the blueprint of particle physics. But in past experiments, scientists have thought there could be a fourth, more mysterious type. Results from an experiment called MiniBooNE, combined with data from another called the Liquid Scintillator Neutrino Detector, seem to add even further evidence for the existence of the sterile neutrino.
