IceCube Neutrinos Point to Long-Sought Cosmic Ray Accelerator

In two papers published today in Science, IceCube together with partner telescopes and observatories on Earth and in space announced the identification of blazar TXS 0506+056 as the first likely source of high-energy neutrinos and cosmic rays.


An important step towards understanding neutrino masses

Neutrinos are used to investigate a broad spectrum of physics topics, ranging from the extreme universe to the underlying symmetries of nature.


Improving searches for galactic sources of high-energy neutrinos

The search for sources of high-energy neutrinos and cosmic rays has revealed neutrinos from distant galaxies and from all over the sky traveling through the Antarctic ice.


Week 25 at the Pole

As a thank you for the fine midwinter dinner put together by the galley crew, the scientists at the Pole took their turn at meal preparation. First up was pizza night, with lots of different toppings, including a duck-honey-hoisin pizza that garnered some praise.
