Event description
Join Jenni Adams explores how neutrinos are cosmic messengers that can travel through the Universe.

About this event

The aptly named IceCube collaboration, a huge telescope buried in the crystal clear ice of Antarctica, has been running for 10 years. It’s there to detect neutrinos, an almost undetectable particle.

Join Jenni Adams as she discusses how these neutrinos could be the key to finding some of the highest energy sources in the Universe, some a million times more energetic than our sun.

In this talk, Jenni explores how neutrinos are cosmic messengers that can travel through the Universe. Why they barely interact with anything they pass through and the precise instruments and machinery required to detect them.
