IceCube_Neutrino_Observatory

IceCube is a very-high-energy neutrino telescope operating at the South Pole.

IceCube monitors all the sky, all the time in search for neutrinos of astrophysical origin. Potential sources of neutrinos include supernova remnants, active galactic nuclei (AGNs), gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), etc. Most crucially it is believed that the, still unkown, sources of cosmic rays are also sources of neutrinos.

IceCube has discovered an astrophysical flux of neutrinos, which specific type of source produces these neutrinos is still unknown .

The Taboada group uses IceCube data to search for neutrinos from GRBs and other short transient.
