Funny factoid. This neutrino had an energy equal to a flying house fly (kinetic energy of 12mg at 10km/h is around 300 tera–electronvolts): http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=(12+miligrams+*+(10+km%...

except that that image is upside down, icecube mostly takes its images thru the earth out of neutrinos coming in thru the north pole

Welcome to the galaxy stranger, this is our ray-gun- its big- and constantly firing.. so if you are not up to something good here- your home planet better be good at dodge ball.
