Search for elusive sterile neutrino continues with improved high-energy muon neutrino reconstruction in IceCube
By Alisa King-Klemperer | | Research |
Neutrinos are tiny “ghostlike” particles that traverse long distances across the universe, interacting with matter only through the weak force. They come in three different types or “flavors”—electron, muon, and tau—and during their journey through the atmosphere and the Earth can transform from one flavor to another. This phenomenon, called [...]

IceCube Masterclass brings together students and scientists from around the world
By Alisa King-Klemperer | | Outreach |
This year, over 200 students across 20 research institutions in Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Thailand, Sweden, and the United States participated in the eleventh edition of IceCube Masterclass. The masterclasses were held between the months of January and May, with many of them running an in-person program. This year, the [...]

Week 23 at the Pole
By Jean DeMerit | | Life at the Pole |
The photos from last week are all indoor shots, but clearly auroras aren’t the only source of color at the Pole. Last week the station celebrated a New Orleans–themed cocktail party, hosted by the SPT and BICEP winterovers. Décor and dress code were in the spirit of Mardi Gras (colorful), [...]
