The first source of high-energy neutrinos
On the 12th of July 2018 the IceCube Neutrino Observatory has announced the discovery of the first source of cosmic neutrinos. This is not only a great scientific achievement, but also giving first answers to the leading questions written above. The findings are published in two Science Papers 'Multimessenger observations of a flaring blazar coincident with high-energy neutrino IceCube-170922A' [here] and 'Neutrino emission from the direction of the blazar TXS 0506+056 prior to the IceCube-170922A alert' [here] (Also check our News section for more information).
Furthermore there is a video that has been produced in cooperation with the Technical University of Munich explaining the scientific details and significance of the findings for the entire field. In the second video below several leading researches of IceCube present the results from their perspective.
