This is pretty cool factoid, and undoubtedly to spur "inner Earth
Some would say "cook theorists", but this test result makes the cook
theory look a bit less cooky, and a little more fact-y.
Bizarre Cosmic Rays Are Shooting Out Of Antarctica And Physicists
Can't Explain It
…Thanks to the Standard Model, physicists have known that cosmic
rays are capable of reaching and penetrating Earth. However,
according to the model, those rays shouldn’t be able to pass all
the way through our planet. So are the anomalous high energy
particles measured by ANITA originating from Earth, or are they
actually passing through it?
Some existing physics models that exist beyond the Standard Model
involve theories that the interactions between cosmic rays and ice
actually produce micro black holes that open into small dimensions.
ANITA’s first mission didn’t detect the black holes, but it did
detect the Askaryan effect.
Last week, a group of researchers posted a new theory about the
rays measured by ANITA. The group, led by Pennsylvania State
University physicist Derek Fox, suggests ANITA may have found
evidence of a particle that lies completely outside of the Standard
Model of physics.
