From WTTW’s Chicago Tonight, June 5, 2018: A team of physicists announced findings that could reveal the existence of a mysterious new type of particle known as a sterile neutrino. The finding by Fermilab’s MiniBooNE happens to come with several Chicago connections.
From Science, June 4, 2018: Don’t toss out your particle physics textbooks just yet. A team of particle physicists, including MiniBooNE collaborators, announced results that could point to an exotic new particle called a sterile neutrino. But the situation is more ambiguous than some reports suggest. Although the new data bolster one argument for the sterile neutrino, other evidence has weakened significantly in recent years.
From Gizmodo, June 4, 2018: Last year, a paper cast doubt on the existence of a sterile neutrino. But a new report from scientists at MiniBooNE provides even more evidence for the particle.
From BBC News, June 6, 2018: The MiniBooNE experiment at Fermilab may have found hints of a new particle. Specifically, the data may hint at a previously undetected form of neutrino, known as a “sterile neutrino.”
From Los Alamos National Laboratory, June 6, 2018: New research results have potentially identified a fourth type of neutrino, a “sterile neutrino” particle.
From Newsweek, June 4, 2018: After years of controversy and conflicting results, MiniBooNE appears to support old results from the LSND experiment. Researchers think it might be evidence of a fabled and highly controversial elementary particle, the sterile neutrino.
From Daily Mail, June 4, 2018: MiniBooNE, a Fermilab experiment, published new results that mirror those seen from an experiment run in the 1990s at Los Alamos National Laboratory, which could be interpreted as evidence for sterile neutrinos, a theorized source of the universe’s dark matter.
From Physicsworld, June 4, 2018: Physicists working on the Mini Booster Neutrino Experiment (MiniBooNE) at Fermilab in the US have released new results that they argue provide strong evidence for the existence of a new type of particle known as a sterile neutrino.
