"The current IceCube detector is providing leading results in astrophysics and particle physics, specifically measurements of neutrino oscillations by researchers in Copenhagen, but can only take us so far. When neutrinos oscillate, they change 'flavour'—and actually change properties. Through a truly international effort, this new detector is going to be a huge leap forward in our ability to understand the fundamental properties of the neutrino in ways that no other project in the world can do now," says D. Jason Koskinen, Associate Professor and leader of the local IceCube research group at the Niels Bohr Institute.

The principal goal of this first IceCube extension is to perform precision studies of the strange phenomenon known as 'neutrino oscillation,' where neutrinos produced as one type may 'oscillate' to another as they travel. The sensitivity of the...
