Title: IceCube - A New Detector for Neutrino Astronomy and Particle Astrosphysics

IceCube, currently under construction at the South Pole, will be a gigaton detector for high-energy neutrinos and muons. Half of the 5000 optical modules that make up IceCube are now installed in the more »ice and taking data. The main goal is to find high-energy neutrinos from distant astrophysical sources such as active galactic nuclei and exploding massive stars. I will describe how the detector works, show some current results and discuss status and future plans for the project.« less
