"IceCube: A Cubic Kilometer Neutrino Telescope"
ABSTRACT:
The IceCube neutrino telescope, located deep in the glacial ice at the geographic South Pole, is the worlds largest neutrino observatory. The primary goal of IceCube is the detection of high energy neutrinos of astrophysical origin. In its second year of construction, IceCube now includes its predecessor, AMANDA. This talk will cover the science goals, design, and construction of IceCube, along with recent results from AMANDA.
