IceCube search for continuous and transient neutrino emission in the direction of real-time alerts
By Alisa King-Klemperer | | Research |
A cubic-kilometer array embedded in ice, the IceCube Neutrino Observatory detects cosmic messengers called neutrinos that can travel through space uninhibited. Of particular interest are high-energy astrophysical neutrinos, which can be traced back to their sources. IceCube issues real-time alerts to the public within minutes of the detection of a [...]

Second ThaisCube workshop strengthens partnership between IceCube, Thailand
By Alisa King-Klemperer | | OutreachWIPAC |
Last week concluded the 2nd ThaisCube workshop held in Chiang Mai, Thailand, a program that developed from a partnership between Chiang Mai University (CMU) in Thailand, the National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand (NARIT), and the IceCube Neutrino Observatory. The workshop brought together IceCube researchers, Thai scientists, and aspiring young [...]

Week 37 at the Pole
By Jean DeMerit | | Life at the Pole |
It’s getting quite bright outdoors, clear enough to see the penguin in front of you—that is, if you happen to be holding a paper version in your hand (or are reading a special comic), as there are no such creatures otherwise found at the South Pole. Even though it’s still [...]
