    "Evidence for High-Energy Extraterrestrial Neutrinos at the IceCube Detector"

    Judging from newspaper accounts, a lot of physicists seem very excited by this paper. Can anyone offer any further insight? Are the present results hard to explain theoretically? Are there specific questions that can be answered by IceCube?

    There was some discussion earlier in this thread. I will have to look at the present paper to see if there's any evidence for deviation from the expected known-physics background for extraterrestrial neutrinos that was discussed in that thread.
