Hear how IceCube, the biggest and strangest telescope in the world, was built in one of the most remote and extreme environments on Earth!  Visit with IceCube scientists and students from UWRF, UW-Madison, and UC-Berkeley and hear firsthand their contributions to developing new ways to explore the Universe from the South Pole.  Learn about neutrinos, the mysterious cosmic messengers that IceCube detects, and what they are telling us about the composition of matter, cosmic explosions, and more.  See how the new digital projector at UWRF has transformed the planetarium into a multidiscipline visualization center.

We hope you will attend one or more of the listed events.  For more information contact Professor Jim Madsen, 715-425-3235 james.madsen@uwrf.edumail
