An international team of scientists is working under Antarctica's snow-covered surface to build the world's largest neutrino telescope. The telescope -- called IceCube -- will occupy a cubic kilometer of Antarctica when it is completed in 2011, said University of Delaware Professor Thomas Gaisser, one of the project's lead scientists. IceCube will provide new information about some of the most violent and far-away astrophysical events in the cosmos, said Gaisser, who is managing the...

The IceCube Neutrino Observatory is a neutrino telescope that is currently being built at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. IceCube is being constructed in deep Antarctic ice by deploying thousands of PMTs (photomultiplier tubes) at depths of 4750 to 8000 feet. These spherical optical sensors are deployed on strings of sixty modules each, into holes melted by hot water drilling. Since 2005, 59 strings have been deployed and installation is expected to be complete by 2011. The strings are...
