In this talk I will introduce neutrino astronomy, the art of using neutrinos to study the most remote corners of the universe. In particular, I will be talking about the ANITA experiment. ANITA is a radio detector attached to a giant helium balloon that periodically flies above Antarctica looking for signatures of particles coming from outside our galaxy. I will present the challenges of putting together a particle physics experiment in one of the most inhospitable places on Earth, I will present results from our latest flights and finally I will talk about the quirks of life on the driest coldest continent on Earth.
Link to the talk will be on our Moodle Page – See you then!
