Conducted lectures

Extreme astrophysics: The IceCube Neutrino Telescope at the South Pole

  • Date: 7/9 2022, at 18.30 – 19.30
  • Location: The Humanities Theatre, English Park, Thunbergsvägen 3C
  • Lecturer: Carlos de los Heros

IceCube is the weirdest telescope of all. Buried 2.5 km below the Antarctic ice, it continuously monitors the sky in search of neutrinos, ghostly particles that hardly interact but that can reveal the inner workings of the most violent objects in the Universe: Supernova explosions, supermassive black holes or bursts of gamma rays. The talk will guide you through why do we need neutrino telescopes, how they work and recent discoveries of IceCube.
