L'Osservatorio "IceCube Neutrino\
"detects 100,000 neutrinos per year in the GeV to the PeV energy range. Among those, we have recently isolated a flux of high-energy cosmic neutrinos. I will discuss the instrument, the analysis of the data, and the significance of the discovery of cosmic neutrinos."
In this lecture on the IceCube project, Principal Investigator Francis Halzen explains his physicist's view of astronomy and the relevance of cosmic neutrinos for understanding the origin of the highest energy cosmic rays, concluding with a view of what "IceCube science" holds for the future.
