The description of confidence is typical. It leaves out the risk that an alternative hypothesis (NOT a null hypothesis) explains the data. I hate how the media does that.

It says 1 in 3.5 million chance it is not a neutrino from CNO. I wonder what Bayesian prior can be attached to this likelihood. If all you have are other sources of noise, and having observed the experiment for long enough, the chances are you will still get a positive detection.
