I've done a search and could find nothing about the Ice Cube Neutrino Observatory on ATS. I think it's an interesting project - here's a link to their website:

Ice Cube Explained:

Part of the article:

IceCube, a telescope under construction at the South Pole, will search for neutrinos from the most violent astrophysical sources: events like exploding stars, gamma ray bursts, and cataclysmic phenomena involving black holes and neutron stars. The IceCube telescope is a powerful tool to search for dark matter, and could reveal the new physical processes associated with the enigmatic origin of the highest energy particles in nature. IceCube will encompass a cubic kilometer of ice and uses a novel astronomical messenger called a neutrino to probe the universe.

Neutrinos are produced by the decay of radioactive elements and elementary particles such as pions. Unlike other particles, neutrinos are antisocial, difficult to trap in a detector. It is the feeble interaction of neutrinos with matter that makes them uniquely valuable as astronomical messengers. Unlike photons or charged particles, neutrinos can emerge from deep inside their sources and travel across the universe without interference. They are not deflected by interstellar magnetic fields and are not absorbed by intervening matter. However, this same trait makes cosmic neutrinos extremely difficult to detect; immense instruments are required to find them in sufficient numbers to trace their origin.

Here's their 'Amanda' project:

And some info on the station itself:

Neutrino is generated from tremendous forces.
With Tesla's statement that he could make any potential
and mentioned 100,000,000 volts, some people think he
discovered the neutrino and anything else that was left
in matter to be found.
Tesla did what he said, he is called mad and crazy because
no one else can do what he did and if they did it would be
very very bad for the world of science.

Hi, berenike.

Wow ! Nice find. F & S !

That beats "our" neutrino detector ! ! B-)

Blue skies.
