The dawn of high energy neutrino astronomy

Lecture in English

by Prof. Dr. Elisa Resconi, TU München

Friday, 24 November 2023, 8 p.m.

Venue: Volkssternwarte (Munich Public Observatory), Rosenheimer Str. 145h, 81671 München

Our understanding of the Universe relies on various forms of information, such as electromagnetic radiation, gravitational waves, neutrinos, and cosmic rays. While cosmic rays have been observed for over a century, our knowledge of their origins is limited. Neutrinos, produced in cosmic ray interactions, can provide insights into the Universe's extreme regions. The IceCube Neutrino Observatory has been at the forefront of neutrino astronomy for the past decade, detecting high-energy neutrinos beyond Earth's atmosphere. This presentation will showcase IceCube's recent findings.
Despite IceCube's achievements, neutrino astronomy is still in its early stages, constrained by its location at the South Pole and scale. To make significant advancements in astro and particle physics, we require more observatories and larger telescopes interconnected through a global network. The Pacific Ocean Neutrino Experiment (P-ONE) is a promising development, utilizing existing oceanographic infrastructure. We have established a scientific partnership with Ocean Networks Canada, laying the groundwork for P-ONE's deployment in an optimal location as a crucial step toward enhancing our understanding of the Universe.

If the skies are clear, guests are invited to visit the rooftop observatory and enjoy the views through our telescopes in the visual part of the electromagnetic spectrum!
