‘Nutrino factories’ may hold solution to cosmic ray mystery

New research has revealed that the high-energy neutrinos and cosmic rays that bombard Earth from deep space are generated in blazars – the actively galactic nuclei (AGNs) that lurk at the center of galaxies and supermassive black holes. are operated by.

researchers know cosmic rays are charged particles from deep space that constantly collide Earth With an energy as large as 1020 electron volts—a million times more energetic than the energy generated at Large Hadron Collider (LHC). What can trigger these particles with such force that they travel billions of light-years, however, remains a mystery.
