IceCube Year(+) in Review

This has been another good year for IceCube. 

Big Bird made the American Physical Society list of the top ten physics news stories in 2014.  The details were published our article extending the high-energy contained event search to 3 years of data (as discussed in a previous post).

We also published a number of interesting articles on other subjects: cosmic neutrinos at lower energies, dark matter, neutrino oscillations, the search for magnetic monopoles, and other subjects.

Francis Halzen and I have written an article for the CERN Courier summarizing what IceCube has learned so far, and discussing future plans with HEX and PINGU.  I'm happy to report that the article became the cover story for the December, 2014 issue.  It is available here; I may be biased, but I think it's a nice article, well worth reading.
