IceCube to appear in BBC and PBS documentaries
By Staff | | Outreach |
The IceCube Neutrino Observatory, a massive astroparticle physics experiment located at the South Pole, will be featured in two upcoming documentaries about neutrinos produced for the BBC and PBS NOVA. Sometimes called the world’s biggest and strangest telescope, IceCube comprises over 5,000 light sensors deployed in a cubic kilometer of [...]

IceCube analysis puts most general constraints on nonstandard neutrino interactions
By Madeleine O'Keefe | | Research |
For decades, physicists have theorized that the current best theory describing particle physics—the “Standard Model”—was not sufficient to explain the way the universe works. In the search for physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM), elusive particles called neutrinos might point the way. Neutrinos are sometimes called “ghost particles” because they [...]

Week 41 at the Pole
By Jean DeMerit | | Life at the Pole |
What started out as a relatively quiet week at the Pole ended with some excitement. First, there was an incoming flight. After eight months of isolation, these were the first visitors to arrive at the station. But they only stopped briefly to refuel on their way from Rothera Research Station [...]
