Francis Halzen: Ice Fishing for Neutrinos

Posted on April 12, 2016

The IceCube project at the South Pole recently discovered a flux of neutrinos reaching us from the cosmos, with energies more than a million times those of the neutrinos produced at accelerator laboratories. Francis Halzen, Gregory Breit Professor and Hilldale Professor of Physics at UW-Madison and the principal investigator of IceCube, discusses the IceCube telescope and highlights its first scientific results, March 23, 2016 as part of the Department of Physics' Bethe Lecture Series.
