The community is invited to a special program at UW Fond du LacTuesday to showcase the UW Madison IceCube project. Jim Madsen with the UW Madison Wisconsin IceCube particle Astrophysics Center says a giant telescope is built deep into the Antarctic ice on the South Pole based IcCube Neutrino observatory.
Madsen says IceCube is designed to observe traces of a mysterious particle that can tell us more about some of the most extreme events in the universe. Madsen says the origin of the particles is the big mystery. He says the ultimate goal is to develop a new way to study the universe. Scientists and staff from the Center will give a public talk at 12:30pm , Tuesday February 25th at the UW Fond du Lac. There will be hands-on activities for all ages from 4-6pm and a movie on the South Pole observatory at 6pm. All events are free and open to the public.
