South Pole Neutrino Detector

Description IceCube is a particle detector at the South Pole that records the interactions of a nearly massless subatomic particle called the neutrino. The detector encompasses a cubic kilometer of ice and uses the neutrino as a novel astronomical messenger to probe the universe. IceCube searches for neutrinos from the most violent astrophysical sources: events like exploding stars, gamma-ray bursts, and cataclysmic phenomena involving black holes and neutron stars. The IceCube telescope is a powerful tool that can also be used to search for dark matter and could reveal the physical processes associated with the enigmatic origins of the highest energy particles in nature.
