Featured releases

On July 12, the IceCube Collaboration together with partner telescopes and observatories announced the first evidence of a source of high-energy cosmic neutrinos. The results were presented in two papers published in Science. The first paper provided an analysis of the neutrino alert event IceCube-170922A in coincidence with electromagnetic observations of the blazar TXS 0506+056. The second paper presented an analysis of IceCube neutrino point source data in the direction of TXS 0506+056 prior to the alert event. Together these results allowed the identification of this blazar as the first likely source of high-energy neutrinos and cosmic rays.

Data Use Policy

IceCube is committed to the goal of releasing data to the scientific community. The following links contain data sets produced by AMANDA/IceCube researchers along with a basic description. Due to challenging demands on event reconstruction, background rejection and systematic effects, data will be released after the main analyses are completed and results are published by the international IceCube Collaboration. During the construction phase of IceCube we expect that final data sets can be released within a few years after the data have been taken.
