Unlocking the universe's high energy secrets with large scale neutrino detectors at the South Pole

Hill, Dr Gary C; Protheroe, A/Prof Raymond J

Project Summary

Some of the most violent objects in the universe produce extremely energetic radiation in the form of particles, gamma-rays and neutrinos. Innovative observatories like IceCube, a cubic kilometre of instrumented ice at the South Pole, are being used to identify these astrophysical sources and the mechanisms that produce this extreme
radiation.
