For the past four years, the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, located at the South Pole, has been collecting data on some of the most violent collisions in the universe. Fulfilling aspirations, the detector has observed neutrinos from beyond the Solar System with energies above 60 TeV, at the “magic” 5 σ significance. These neutrinos are just one highlight of IceCube’s broad physics programme, which encompasses searches for astrophysical neutrinos, searches for neutrinos from dark matter, studies of neutrino oscillations, cosmic-ray physics, and searches for supernovae. All of these studies take advantage of a unique detector at a unique location: the South Pole.
