The Aliens of Sesame Street

Bert and Ernie's brothers have arrived on earth, and they came from far outside our solar system, possibly even from another galaxy!

Earlier this year, scientists working on the IceCube experiment in Antarctica discovered Ernie and Bert, two neutrinos with energies over 100 times higher than the protons that circulate in the LHC and now those same scientists report that they have found 28 neutrinos that must have come to earth from explosions in the distant universe.
