NSF mid-scale award sets off the first extension of IceCube

The National Science Foundation has approved full funding to upgrade the IceCube detector, extending its scientific capabilities to lower energies and thus enabling IceCube to reach neutrino energies that overlap with the energy ranges of smaller existing neutrino detectors worldwide.


Fast radio bursts and neutrinos

IceCube recently looked for neutrino events that coincided with 29 fast radio bursts.


New insights into the astrophysical neutrino flux

IceCube analyzed the combined flux of astrophysical electron and tau neutrinos.


Week 5 at the Pole

Since the sun will soon be gone for quite a long stretch, you might as well try to get as much of it while you can. Last week, IceCube winterover Yuya did just that with his camera, capturing a nice time-lapse of the sun around midnight that made a little “smile” in the sky.
