Bizarre Particles Keep Flying Out of Antarctica's Ice, and They Might Shatter Modern Physics

quote [ Physicists don't know what it is exactly. But they do know it's some sort of cosmic ray — a high-energy particle that's blasted its way through space, into the Earth, and back out again. ]

It's not aliens, it's the Old Ones.

The Great Old Ones or the Old Great Ones?

The old one's great.

The Great One's old. 57 to be exact.

The Great One's '57 Olds?

I read an article or watched a video in last few days about how a neutrino can shift states when being observed at multiple points in its "flight path".

But I used to argue, neutrinos turn into "dark matter" when they have lost all momentum without shifting to a phaze point that would of caused an interaction. But then I guess it's a bit of a blackhole that neutrino subject. Quick question are neutrinos affected by gravity and how do they interact with a blackhole?

Now time to see if I can find that article. If so click link.

Neutrinos are affected by gravity the same way that any other particle would be affected. When confronted with a black hole they get sucked in.

What makes neutrinos interesting is that they only interact via gravity and weak nuclear force. They can pass straight through most normal matter because they don't interact with electromagnetism, but they are just as susceptible to gravity as anything else.

Note that they do travel close the the speed of light (due to their small mass) so their trajectories around a black hole should be similar to light.
