### UW–Madison astrophysicists donate computing resources to aid COVID-19 research

Friday, May 15, 2020 - 8:00am

Some of WIPAC's computing resources are beingused to simulate protein folding of SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus responsible for COVID-19. How proteins fold into three-dimensional shapes is difficult to predict but has big effects on biological interactions, like those between a virus and its host. These simulations will help researchers understand how the virus compromises human immune systems and reproduces.

### Antarctic neutrino detector firms up cosmic neutrino sighting

Thursday, August 20, 2015 - 10:00am

Sorting through the billions of subatomic particles that zip through its frozen cubic-kilometer-sized detector each year, researchers using the IceCube Neutrino Observatory have gathered powerful new evidence in support of 2013 observations confirming the existence of cosmic neutrinos.

### Here comes HAWC: New observatory to seek out gamma rays

Friday, March 20, 2015 - 1:15pm
High on a sleeping Mexican volcano, a new particle astrophysics observatory is about to blink to life, commencing an all-sky search for very high energy gamma rays — a search that could greatly expand the catalog of known gamma ray sources and chip away at the mystery of the cosmic rays that constantly bombard our planet.

### Published in Science: Evidence for High-Energy Extraterrestrial Neutrinos at the IceCube Detector

Thursday, November 21, 2013 - 1:15pm

Today, nearly 25 years after the pioneering idea of detecting neutrinos in ice, the IceCube Collaboration announces the observation of 28 very high-energy particle events that constitute the first solid evidence for astrophysical neutrinos from cosmic accelerators. Details of this research will be published tomorrow, November 22, in Science.
