A team led by physicists at the University of California, Irvine has discovered neutrinos produced by a particle collider, marking a scientific first. The discovery is expected to increase scientists’ knowledge of the subatomic particles, which were discovered for the first time in 1956 and are crucial to the burning of stars.The work could also shed light on cosmic neutrinos that travel large distances and collide with the Earth, providing a window on distant parts of the universe.It’s the latest result from the Forward Search Experiment, or FASER, a particle detector designed and built by an international group of physicists and installed at CERN, the European Council for Nuclear Research in Geneva, Switzerland. There, FASER detects particles produced by CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.
