Neutrino linked to black hole that devours star

For only the second time ever, astronomers have linked a neutrino to an object outside our Milky Way. These observations were made using telescopes both on Earth and in space. The researchers, including Leiden astronomer Sjoert van Velzen, were able to trace the neutrino to a black hole that is devouring a star, a so-called tidal disruption event. The results have been published in Nature Astronomy.
