exotic particles[edit]

> The major sources of detector noise are the showers of exotic particles

This sounds quite hilarious, expecially after clicking on the link for "exotic particles", since they have never been observed and would be a signal much more interesting than the neutrinos themselves. I even guess that for the people looking for exotic particles in cosmic ray showers, even neutrino interactions might be a background...

I'm going to edit it.

Neutrino telescope[edit]

Most of the article is about neutrino telescopes, not about neutrino astronomy per se. So I'm moving much of the text to the neutrino telescope article, which formerly redirected here. That leaves this article kind of stubby. We should beef it up with some of the actual results of neutrino astronomy.

There's an interesting article in this month's Scientific American on the subject. It would be a good starting point for expanding this article.—RJH (talk) 15:40, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
Another thing that is missing from this article is Super-Kamiokande and its predecessors, which were important contributors to the field of neutrino astronomy even though they were not designed specifically for this purpose. I'm no expert so I have not opted to edit the article. 97.94.130.17 (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 04:10, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
