Royal visit strengthens WIPAC and IceCube’s partnership with Thailand
Discussions between scientists and Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn explored how to increase research opportunities for Thai researchers and technical staff at the IceCube Neutrino Observatory.
UW–Madison researchers key in revealing neutrinos emanating from galactic neighbor with a gigantic black hole
The astrophysical neutrinos coming from a Milky Way neighbor hold promise for future astronomical discoveries.
WIPAC and IceCube see leadership changes
Changes in leadership are coming to the Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center, which houses UW–Madison's search for neutrinos and the light they can shed on events like exploding stars, gamma-ray bursts, black holes and neutron stars. Professor Kael Hanson will step back from his director role in October. Dr. Jim Madsen will serve as interim center director while Professor Albrecht Karle will lead the IceCube Upgrade Project.
Honk if you love neutrinos
Actually, don't honk — it would be rude — but enjoy the UW–Madison IceCube Neutrino Observatory display at Madison’s Holiday Fantasy in Lights at Olin Park. The lights at the free, drive-through attraction are on every night from 4:30 to 10 p.m. through Jan. 3.
Cosmic ray exhibits, conference explore the universe’s mysteries
Event Horizon: portraits of three physicists captured holding an object that inspired their careers, and Messages from the Horizon, which consists of spinning LEDs representing black holes, are on display in the Main Gallery of the Memorial Union.
Sensor from Antarctic observatory IceCube joins Smithsonian collection
IceCube uses thousands of these sensors embedded in a cubic kilometer of ice underneath the South Pole to track neutrinos, invisible subatomic particles that traverse space at nearly the speed of light.
Gamma ray telescope ready for prime time
A new telescope, part of an international effort to develop and build the world’s largest, most sensitive gamma-ray detector, was unveiled to the public Thursday. UW–Madison scientists developed a camera at the heart of the telescope.
IceCube helps demystify strange radio bursts from deep space
A University of Wisconsin–Madison physicist and his colleagues are turning IceCube, the world’s most sensitive neutrino telescope, to the task of helping demystify powerful pulses of radio energy generated up to billions of light-years from Earth.
