Toy IceCube

I wanted to share with you this entertaining video about IceCube (you know, the neutrino observatory that I talked about on a previous post.)

The author of the video is Casey O’Hara, a high school teacher from California that in a matter of days will be travelling to the South Pole to join the IceCube people stationed there. Mr. O’Hara is involved in PolarTREC, an NSF-funded program that provides polar research experiences for teachers; you can get more details about his trip from this link.

Although the toy polar explorer seemed happy while drilling the ice and installing the string with phototubes, I’ve heard from the people that actually do this stuff that it’s a bit more difficult than what it seems 😉

As a proof, take a look at this video of the deployment of one string into the 2.5 km-deep ice hole.
