Searching for cosmic accelerators with IceCube

n our universe there are particle accelerators 40 million times more powerful than the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. Scientists don’t know what these cosmic accelerators are or where they are located, but new results being reported from “IceCube,” the neutrino observatory buried at the South Pole, may show the way. These new results should also erase any doubts as to IceCube’s ability to deliver on its promise.

Cosmic ray bursts still a mystery

Gamma ray bursts turn out not to be the cause of the strongest cosmic rays, leaving scientists scratching their heads.

South Pole neutrino observatory completed

The world's largest neutrino observatory was completed on Saturday, with the installation of the final string of optical sensors in the IceCube Neutrino Observatory.
