Galaxy map used to measure neutrinos

The mass of the universe’s lightest particles, neutrinos, can be more accurately measured thanks to a new mapping study.

Using data from a WiggleZ survey the researchers made a three-dimensional map of 240,000 galaxies to simulate the neutrino masses.

The subatomic particles are fundamental to our understanding of supernovas and how galaxies are formed.
