A trio of high-energy neutrinos have been detected at the IceCube particle detector in the Antarctica. All three arrived within 100 seconds of each other, indicating they came from the same origin – but, as of yet, scientists do now know their source.

The three muon neutrino candidates were detected on 17 February 2016, at the IceCube Neutrino Observatory in the South Pole. The first detector of its kind, IceCube is designed to observe cosmic rays from deep within the ice. It looks for near-massless subatomic particles called neutrinos, which provide information about violent cosmic events, as well as helping answer questions about dark matter.
