  1. Astroparticle physicist and IceCube spokesman Darren Grant said it’s as though scientists have spent 100 years listening to thunder with their eyes closed and never known what caused the booming sound. It wasn't until they looked up and saw lightning that the spectacle finally made sense. Both sound and light — or in this case, cosmic rays and neutrinos — are coming from the same event.

    Cool.

  2. "5,160 sensors buried more than a mile beneath the ice detected a single ghostly neutrino as it interacted with an atom. Scientists then traced the particle back to the galaxy that created it.".

    Wow. Better be damn sure to hang your hat on that claim.

  3. "Blazar?" I propose that astronomers no longer be allowed to name anything, possibly including their own children.
