Cosmic Neutrinos

Saturday, 14 February 2015: 8:30 AM-11:30 AM
Room 230A (San Jose Convention Center)
Neutrinos are by far the most numerous matter particles in the universe. They have profound effects on the expansion of the universe, its large scale structure, and the primordial synthesis of the elements. Most of the energy of supernova explosions is released in the form of neutrinos, giving a unique window into these extreme events. Recently, the IceCube neutrino telescope, built into the ice at the South Pole, discovered a flux of high-energy neutrinos from space whose origin is unknown. This session will delve into what present and future observations can tell us about the mysteries of neutrinos and their role in the cosmos.
