On September 15, 2021, at 7 pm, there will be a special edition of Wednesday Nite @ The Lab, the weekly science outreach series hosted by the University of Wisconsin–Madison. This Wednesday’s program features scientists from the Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center (WIPAC), a UW–Madison research center, who will give a presentation titled “IceCube Turns Ten: Past, Present and Future for the World’s Biggest and Strangest Observatory.”

Remember the “Climb to Mt. Everest” challenge, started back in May? The winterovers finally completed the 600 ascents (descents) of the beer can that constitute the equivalent height of Mount Everest.

Although IceCube is a well-behaved detector, it nonetheless has issues arise from time to time that require attention.
