Dark Matter Day 2020: Searching for dark matter with the IceCube Neutrino Observatory

outreach event • Virtual

The IceCube Neutrino Observatory might be best known for its contributions to neutrino physics. But did you know? Neutrinos can also be used to look for dark matter! Join WIPAC for our virtual Dark Matter Day 2020 event where you will learn about how IceCube scientists are using a neutrino detector located under the ice at the South Pole to solve one of the biggest mysteries in the universe.
