So far all we know about astronomy is provided by electromagnetic (em) radiation. We see light – one form of em radiation – of remote stars and galaxies. We detect this light by extremely sensitive telescopes and their cameras. We detect other forms of stellar em radiation such as radio waves, and x- and gamma-rays. Recent advances in neutrino detection provide new opportunities for neutrino astronomy.
Neutrinos allow astrophysicists to study processes in the core of our sun, explore the very first seconds of Supernova star explosion, as well as other events obscure to em radiation telescopes. The new IceCube neutrino telescope in Antarctica will be discussed.
