Fun with IceCube Telescope

IceCube, the biggest and strangest telescope in the world, was built in one of the most remote and extreme environments on Earth—the South Pole—to develop new ways to explore the universe.

The telescope is buried a mile down in the Antarctic ice sheet and looks down, into and through the earth, rather than up into the sky.

How did our scientists and engineers build IceCube in the Antarctic glacier? Come explore hot water drilling with us and ask about living and working at the South Pole!
