About 4 billion years ago, a super-massive black hole in the heart of a distant galaxy erupted a stream of extremely energetic particles in the direction of Earth. Now, an international team of researchers, including also a researcher from University of Nova Gorica, has revealed how one of these particles, elusive neutrinos, was detected and, with the help of NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, linked back to its likely source.
