World’s Largest Neutrino Telescope Buried in Antarctic Ice
IceCube, the largest neutrino observatory on earth, covers one cubic kilometer of Antarctic ice. The detector is looking for high-energy neutrinos coming from deep space. Physicist Francis Halzen discusses the decision to build the telescope at the South Pole and how we can construct a map of the cosmos with neutrinos.
Francis Halzen is Hilldale and Gregory Breit Professor in the physics department at the University Wisconsin, Madison in Madison, Wisconsin.
