How to catch neutrinos – Interview with IceCube Scientist Silvia Bravo Gallart

Neutrinos are as elusive as they are interesting – they hardly ever interact with mass and so are very challenging to observe. Which is why the ambitious $280 million experiment IceCube, located at the Amundsen–Scott South Pole Station in Antarctica, was built. Buried in the ice nearly a mile below the surface are 60 detectors designed to look for neutrinos and explore the highest-energy phenomenon in our Universe.
