Supporting Stations: South Pole Station
The IceCube neutrino telescope transforms a cubic kilometer of ice into a Cherenkov detector. IceCube will open unexplored wavelength bands for astronomy using neutrinos as cosmic messengers. The project is an international collaboration and the University of Wisconsin Madison serves as the host institution providing oversight and staffing.
Field Season Overview
Field team members will deploy to Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. On-Ice activities include maintenance and operational improvements to the existing infrastructure. This work will take place primarily in the IceCube Counting Laboratory (ICL), Building 21.
