Fermilab Experiment Hints At Existence of Brand-New Elementary Particle | Popular Science

Quote:
Physicists working with a Fermilab neutrino experiment may have found a new elementary particle whose behavior breaks the known laws of physics. If correct, their results poke holes in the accepted Standard Model of particles and forces, and raise some interesting questions for the Large Hadron Collider and Tevatron experiments. The new particle could even explain the existence of dark matter.

It occurred to me that it could've been caught between the switch from one flavor to another, hence the 'sterile' nature of it.

The "new" neutrino flavor may make up some of the mass of Dark Matter but so far WIMPS and super-WIMPS seem to make up it's bulk; but more data is needed for a more conclusive determination.
