IceCube sets strongest limits on galaxy clusters as potential neutrino sources
By Alisa King-Klemperer | | Research |
At present, one of the long-standing astronomical mysteries is the origin of cosmic rays, high-energy charged particles hurtling through space at the speed of light. Upon entering the atmosphere, they interact with atoms and produce an air shower of secondary particles, including nearly massless subatomic particles called neutrinos. Although very [...]

Week 39 at the Pole
By Jean DeMerit | | Life at the Pole |
Last week was another quiet week at the Pole. And it was cloudy and windy again, with the slowly rising sun mostly obscured in the sky. IceCube’s winterovers were paged a few times to go out to the IceCube Lab, so they were out and about in the cloudy, windy [...]
