We use our smartphones for a myriad of things, from normal phone activities to finding constellations in the night’s sky. And soon, your smartphone could be used to detect cosmic rays, much like the high-end, multimillion-dollar observatories.

High-energy Neutrinos Recorded By IceCube Particle Detector In Antarctica
2013-12-02 09:48:39

Scientists at a massive underground particle detector in Antarctica called the IceCube South Pole Neutrino Observatory have detected high-energy neutrinos, ideal for the future of "extreme astronomy" because they can be used to detect the sources of cosmic rays and provide information about our universe's most violent and least-understood phenomena.

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...
