Astrophysics argue that data from two events recorded by the Anita neutrino detector in the Antarctic can not be explained by the standard model and hints at new particles. Moreover, the level of statistical significance of this data is high.

These two types of signals are distinguished by how polarized radio wave, which determines the direction from which they go. However, twice – in 2006 and 2014 – the detector recorded unusual radio waves with unchanged polarization, which came from under the surface of the Earth, and not from the horizon. This means that neutrino passed through the planet, which, however, is not a deviation from the standard model. Other: Anita data has shown that fixed particles were to have high energy. And at high energy increases the chances of the fact that the particle will interact with the substance through which flies. Therefore, researchers argue that "neutrino" with such energies there was no chance to pass through the planet. So, there is a reason to talk about the deviations from the standard model. Scientists do not insist on the fact that they found a new type of particles. However, the explanation of these phenomena within the standard model is impossible.
Last year, the deviation was discovered by the collaboration of the CERN. It consisted in violation of the lepton universality of the decay of the neutral B-meson on the lepton pair and excited Kaon.
