Prof. Olga Botner, IceCube spokesperson and a physics professor at the University of Uppsala, and Prof. Francis Halzen, IceCube principal investigator and a professor at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, tell us about the plans for an upgrade to the IceCube Neutrino Observatory.

Yet another year has come to an end for IceCube with plenty of new science results, an always growing international collaboration, and plans for an update to the IceCube Neutrino Observatory.

How is it possible to distinguish a neutrino produced by the interaction of cosmic rays in the Earth’s atmosphere from an astrophysical neutrino when the particles themselves are identical? The idea is simple enough: atmospheric neutrinos are always produced together with other particles, including muons.

A few years after the completion of IceCube, one of the major goals of building this strange cubic-kilometer detector at the South Pole has already been accomplished: the unequivocal observation of an astrophysical neutrino flux.

Strong evidence for a very high energy neutrino flux of extraterrestrial origin was found in November 2013, and new data from IceCube now confirms the discovery. Once more, the Antarctic detector brings us still the highest energy neutrino ever observed. This 2-PeV neutrino event was detected by IceCube on Tuesday, December 4, 2012. It was dubbed “Big Bird.”

Not everyone begins a new year on January 1, right? That includes IceCubers, who decided a while ago that mid-May would be a good time to start a new year of data for the South Pole neutrino observatory.

Last June, attendees at the Neutrino 2012 international conference heard about two rare events observed by the IceCube neutrino telescope. Science-trained eyes immediately classified them as something they had never seen before. In a paper submitted to Physical Review Letters, the IceCube Collaboration confirms that those two events are the two highest energy neutrinos ever observed.

From its vantage point at the geographic South Pole in Antarctica, the IceCube Neutrino Observatory is uniquely positioned to see neutrinos—mysterious, nearly massless, difficult-to-detect particles that are plentiful but little understood.
The Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center (WIPAC) is pleased to announce a student internship program for high school students in the Madison, Wisconsin area. WIPAC interns will work with astrophysicists who support projects like the IceCube Neutrino Observatory at the South Pole and HAWC, the High Altitude Water Cherenkov in the mountains of Mexico.
Research at WIPAC At WIPAC, research focuses on particle astrophysics, which uses neutrinos, cosmic rays, and gamma rays to explore the extreme universe. Very powerful processes dominate the cosmos...
