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.
