It happened during the destruction of a star by a black hole, next to which this star was. As a result, a high-energy neutrino was formed, which became a real gift for earthly science. One of the important conclusions that can be drawn is that such phenomena are natural accelerators and generators of elementary particles, and very powerful ones.

Having traveled insane by our standards, the neutrino reached the South Pole in October 2020, where it was registered by an elementary particle detector. This complex system is located right under the ice, it serves to detect high-energy particles coming to us from afar. A few months later, a telescope in California was able to "see" a flash of light in the very galaxy referred to in the title, and where the neutrino came from.
