Neutrino Telescopes, fall to find point sources.

With physicists building big neutrino detectors like IceCube (picture is a mock event at IceCube)
and Anteras astrophysicists where hoping for a completely new way of seeing the universe. However the first results for neutrino astronomy coming the old Super Kamiokande labs,
and from around 1500 neutrino in the TeV range, the've found Nothing, no point sources, no excess from the Sun, no excess from the galactic center, and even no excess from cosmic ray interactions with intersteller gas in our spiral arms. The're picture of incoming neutrino directions was pretty much isotropic.

Now this is not what people where expecting at all, from the using theory of WIMPS for dark matter, dark matter anhillation should have left plenty of sources in the neutrino sky, especially the sun and galactic center. But even without dark matter, there should have been excesses from cosmic rays interactions and from pulsars. The null result looks difficult to explain, unless neutrino feel some field (like a magnetic field but not the usual magnetic field) thats scrambing up the direction they fly in.

Well i had the idea that neutrinos get a gauge force to themselves
for while now, so i'm biased and always look for confirmations
of my idea first in any paper i read, but can
anyone see any other reason for the null results from SuperK?

Well after a month and half, of posting round physics forums, i still haven't had any feedback, I've got over a hundred page views, so a can assume, that my theory is not so easily shoot down-able, that anyone had time to write a quick put down. Meanwhile I've updated my website with a nice page on the standard model and very speculative page on fitting the standard model into the groups E6 and E8, via the extra two (or each color) quark states per generations. I've got some very nice povray rendered graphics for the quarks and leptons on those pages, so its worth a look, even if you don't understand what I'm talking about.

My paper on a new force between neutrinos.

So after a year and a half of work, i'm ready to release my paper, which might just revolutionise particle physics. To get it published is going to a fair effort with, no doubt, a lot of corrections and edits. Mean time i want to get a preprint out on ArXiv. So i'm asking for a physicist already preprinted there to give me an endorsement. And any feedback on my paper is welcome.

You can find my paper in PDF format, on my site, chirality, along with a non technical (well it at least, non mathematical), explaination of my idea. So can send me feedback on my idea either by email, or directly to this blog. Depending if you wither the replies to be made public or private.
