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 6 at the Pole

So that’s it — the station has officially closed, leaving 42 individuals at the Pole to take care of business during the winter months.
