The IceCube observation of astrophysical neutrinos has been nicely (and quickly!) recognized.
First, Physics World magazine recognized us their 2013 "Breakthrough of the year". IceCube wont he top honors, beating out nine other stories, including the Rex-Isolde observation that some atomic nuclei are pear-shaped.
Then, Scientific American selected IceCube as one of their top 10 science stories of 2013.
All-in-all, it was a pretty darn good month for IceCube.
