As part of our spring distinguished lecture series UW-Madison WIPAC staff will be here to share how IceCube, the biggest and strangest telescope in the world was built in one of the most remote and extreme environments on Earth to develop new ways to explore the Universe.  Learn about neutrinos, the mysterious cosmic messengers that IceCube detects, and what they are telling us about the composition of matter, cosmic explosions and more.
