A failed Acopian power supply is on the table for investigation. The IceCube winterovers have a broad range of job duties, but of course maintaining (and fixing if necessary) all of the computer hardware involved in collecting data from the detector is a high priority task. This week they also spent some time with their ARO colleagues, who have been ramping up balloon observations as sunrise at the Pole draws nearer.
