In a study published today in the journal Physical Review D, HAWC announces a measurement of the cosmic-ray energy spectrum in the energy range of 10 to 500 TeV, bridging measurements at higher energy usually performed by ground based detectors and measurements at lower energy that previously had been conducted by detectors on satellites and balloons.

It was a busy week for IceCube’s newest winterovers.  A plane arrived after a long hiatus, bringing some new folks to the station and taking away last year’s winterovers, finally.  But much of the excitement came from alarms going off—the ones for fire were false alarms thankfully.  But it gave the new winterovers a chance to apply their training to emergency response operations.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_dog

Last week kept IceCube’s newest winterovers busy, but not too busy, with a number of activities.  Johannes was on call, and got his first page to deal with a detector issue, but not too big of a problem.  Both winterovers were trained on the PistenBully, or snowcat, and then drove around to the IceTop stations to take snow height measurements.

In a critical measurement that may one day help predict new physics beyond the Standard Model of particle physics, an international team of researchers with the IceCube Neutrino Observatory has shown how energized neutrinos can be stopped cold as they pass through the Earth. The new measurement is reported today in the journal Nature.

Flight canceled?  Well, that happens.  But, canceled … again?  Welcome to plane travel at the Pole.  The changeable weather patterns in the harsh climate of Antarctica make flights in and out susceptible to delays.  It’s part and parcel of the whole experience.
