  1. "A new window into the Universe"

    Elisa Resconi hunts down the most elusive witnesses of cosmic history: high energy neutrinos. With the help of the gigantic IceCube detector at the South Pole, she and her colleagues search for new insights into the unknown.

  2. Particles from Outer Space

    Scientists have discovered evidence of highly energetic neutrinos from outside our solar system. IceCube, a huge detector in Antarctica, has observed 28 neutrinos probably stemming from supernovae, black holes or pulsars.
