Featuring IceCube's PI and spokesperson along with other experts from IceCube, this video explains the identification of the first source of high-energy neutrinos and cosmic rays. These results, published in two Science papers this week, help us answer a one-hundred-year-old riddle: where and how does nature accelerate particles to the highest energies ever detected? This material relates to a paper that appeared in the 13 July 2018, issue of Science, published by AAAS. The papers, by Ice Cube Collaboration are titled, 'Multimessenger observations of a flaring blazar coincident with high-energy neutrino IceCube-170922A,' and 'Neutrino emission from the direction of the blazar TXS 0506+056 prior to the IceCube-170922A alert.'
