Subject Area Physics
Abstract IceCube, currently under construction at the South Pole, will be a gigaton detector for high-energy neutrinos and muons. Half of the 5000 optical modules that make up IceCube are now installed in the ice and taking data. The main goal is to find high-energy neutrinos from distant astrophysical sources such as active galactic nuclei and exploding massive stars. I will describe how the detector works, show some current results and discuss status and future plans for the project.
