An asymmetry between particles and antiparticles in the standard model of particle physics isn't large enough to account for the MiniBooNE results, notes Fermilab's Boris Kayser.
Although antineutrinos should behave exactly the same as neutrinos, just to be safe, the MiniBooNE team decided to repeat the experiment - this time with antineutrinos.
MiniBooNE member Richard Van de Water reported the result at a neutrino conference in Athens, Greece, on 14 June.
According to Fermilab physicist Dan Hooper, who is not part of MiniBooNE, the excess could be because muon antineutrinos turn into sterile neutrinos before becoming electron antineutrinos, reports The New Scientist.
