From the three-dimensional WiggleZ galaxy map, the team measured a statistical number related to the number of galaxy pairs with a given separation. The tail of this distribution depends theoretically on the neutrino mass as illustrated by the different coloured lines. The more massive the neutrinos, the more they suppress the formation of galaxy pairs with short distances (large inverse distances measured in inverse mega-parsec).
