Scientists capture mysterious ‘ghost particle’ in a giant ice cube in ‘triumph’ that is changing the way we see the universe

Scientists have caught a ghost-like subatomic particle on Earth, to help solve a mystery baffling scientists for 100 years.

The so-called “ghost particle” was caught by investigators in a giant ice cube at the south pole.

It is actually a high-energy neutrino, and is the first of its kind ever discovered by scientists.

More importantly, the researchers believe that they have followed, are likely source: a supermassive black hole that emits light, and cosmic rays.
