An international team of scientists and engineers has taken a major step toward completion of what will be the world's preeminent cosmic neutrino observatory, harness......Full article >>>
collisions, distant black holes, quasars and a zoo of the most violent events in the cosmos. They carry information that promises to peel back some of the mystery of the universe's most enigmatic events such as gamma ray bursts, dark matter and supernovas.
But cosmic neutrinos-billions of which pass unnoticed through the Earth and indeed through the human body every day-are, by their very......Full article >>>
uction began in January 2005 when scientists drilled the first hole for the detector and deployed the first optical modules for the observatory.
"The digital optical modules deployed last year have now functioned for one year without failures," says Halzen. "They perform like a Swiss watch. But the big story of this season is the performance of the drill."
After working out kinks......Full article >>>
