Project Description:
The IceCube neutrino telescope transforms a cubic kilometer of ice into a Cherenkov detector. This long-term project is an international collaboration and the University of Wisconsin-Madison serves as the host institution, providing oversight and staffing. IceCube opens unexplored wavelength bands for astronomy using neutrinos as cosmic messengers.

Field Season Overview:
Twenty field team members will deploy to Amundsen-Scot South Pole Station. On-Ice activities for the 2012-2013 austral summer include maintenance and operations improvements to the existing infrastructure.
