4,200 digital optical modules, designed to sample high-energy neutrino particles from deep space, are being deployed in 70 deep holes in the Antarctic ice. Photo courtesy of Daan Hubert/UW-Madison.
Working under harsh Antarctic conditions, an international team of scientists, engineers and technicians has set in place the first critical......Full article >>>
f Antarctic ice as a detector, and will be capable of capturing information-laden, high-energy particles from some of the most distant and violent events in the universe. It promises a new window to the heavens, and it may be astronomy's best bet to resolve the century-old quest to identify the sources of cosmic rays.
The IceCube telescope will look for the telltale signatures of high-ene......Full article >>>
its direction, back to a point of origin, potentially identifying the cosmic accelerators - black holes or crashing galaxies, for example - that produce the high-energy neutrinos.
The telescope now under construction at the South Pole is an international effort involving more than 20 institutions. The project is funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation, with significant contributio......Full article >>>
ded optical detectors produced in Madison, Berlin and Stockholm. Data from the strings and the surface tanks is now being successfully transmitted to the Northern Hemisphere.
The hot-water drill system alone was transported to the South Pole from McMurdo Station on the Antarctic coast in 30 separate C-130 flights.
"We met all of the high-level milestones, including the most signi......Full article >>>
IceCube could take over next year as the world's largest neutrino telescope."
