The IceCube Neutrino Observatory instruments roughly one cubic kilometer of deep, glacial ice below the geographic South Pole with 5160 optical sensors to register the Cherenkov light of passing relativistic, charged particles. Since its construction was completed in 2010, a wide range of analyses has been performed. Those include, among others, the discovery of a high energetic astrophysical neutrino flux, competitive measurements of neutrino oscillation parameters and world-leading limits on…

Evidence for High-Energy Extraterrestrial Neutrinos at the IceCube Detector

The presence of a high-energy neutrino flux containing the most energetic neutrinos ever observed is revealed, including 28 events at energies between 30 and 1200 TeV, although the origin of this flux is unknown and the findings are consistent with expectations for a neutRino population with origins outside the solar system.
