Watch this space for a new exciting opportunity.
Two of our radiation detectors have arrived in Antarctica, and very shortly will be deployed at the IceCube Neutrino Observatory to collect data on background radiation at the South Pole to add to our existing datasets from the International Space Station and LUCID. We need to complete some initial testing but the first datasets should be available in February.
We are very grateful for the support of Professor Jim Madsen and the team at the University of Wisconsin for providing this opportunity, and to TQS, our IT partner, for kindly donating the backup laptop we have sent alongside the core equipment.
If your school is interested in being part of this research project, please make sure you have registered via “join in” to be an IRIS school, or if you have already registered, please send an email, and we will add you to the list.
