Scientists have produced the firmest evidence yet of so-called sterile neutrinos, mysterious particles that pass through matter without interacting with it at all.

The first hints these elusive particles turned up decades ago. But after years of dedicated searches, scientists have been unable to find any other evidence for them, with many experiments contradicting those old results. These new results now leave scientists with two robust experiments that seem to demonstrate the existence of sterile neutrinos, even as other experiments continue to suggest sterile neutrinos don't exist at all.

Here is the juicy part.


That means there's something strange happening in the universe that is making humanity's most cutting-edge physics experiments contradict one another. ( The 18 Biggest Unsolved Mysteries in Physics )

Observation of a Significant Excess of Electron-Like Events in the MiniBooNE Short-Baseline Neutrino Experiment

What this seems to imply is that the universe seems to be reacting strangely. What could be the cause of this?

Interesting /above my head though

You should read the reactions and comments of physicists on this. In the link there are a couple such comments.

For example.

Will turn out to be a standard fact. Nothing strange at all.

You will always have folks that would deny anything that upset their own self-applied apple cart
Scientists are much like politicians in that respect.

Interesting read. Although upon some searches, I found this:

Reports of sterile neutrinos resurrection may greatly be exagerrated

Most articles state they've found "possible signs" that they exist - not a certainty yet!

Thanks for the share.

I don't have much of a background in science. What does it imply that a particle could pass through matter without "interacting" with it? I hear people say that there is no such thing as matter, that all things are made of energy, and that matter is an illusion made possible only by the wavelength of the energy.

Would a particle that passes through matter without interaction be at all analogous to, say, a large celestial body (Nibiru, for grins) passing through our solar system without exerting gravitational forces on the native bodies?

The universe is not acting strangely, our understanding of things and ability to comprehend things is not that good yet. There is way more to things than we already know, we are learning how little we already know.

For those who believe they know all there is to know, they should quit getting paid to research things because they evidently do not have an open enough mind to evaluate what they are seeing or should I say not seeing.

It means there's something that exists which acts like it doesn't exist

Modern science has been hampered by refusing to say the three forbidden words:

"We don't know..."

Interesting.

Looks like the barrier separating the physical realm from the spiritual realm has weakened.

The particle should not exist?
Says Who?

Let me guess...
Some arrogant fool.

It's interesting how scientists blame the universe for their own shortcomings. They'd better stick "safe" stuff, like how mold grows on bread, if they aren't willing to open their minds.

Unfortunately Ricky the universe is not just acting strangely, it defies all law and logic
Hence ludicrous scientific ideas like string theory are hatched

Nobody with any nouse imagines scientists have a clue, only those who don't know anything think scientist know everything

Seems many people believe science knows when if you studied science you would know it's in its infancy

Scientists for the most part are not delusional, it's people who think the scientists know anything are the deluded.

If you studied the problems with what scientists are learning, you would realise the problem isn't theirs, it's not scientists, it's yours
You are the person who is under the impression that the scientists are blaming anything, you are the one who thinks scientists know
Well they don't, in fact they are always trying a new theory, searching, because they know they don't have the answers.

What makes you think that scientists do?

This is bizzare that so many think scientist have, pretend to have the answers
Why do you think scientists have the answers?

Where are the scientists blaming the universe?

They are nearly impossible to detect because they don’t have electromagnetic charge. The only way for them to be “seen” is by gravitational forces.

They don’t pass “through” matter because they are so small that they can fit through matter. Coupled with no electromagnetic properties it makes it seem like it phases through matter.

There are hundreds, thousands, if not millions of unknown particles. Just because we are just finding some doesn’t mean that the universe is acting strangely, it’s just that we do not know where or how to find them.
