Univeristy of Wisconsin physics graduate student Katherine Rawlins (foreground, left) and UW-River Falls physicist James Madsen examine an experiment related to the proposed Ice Cube neutrino detector at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole station on Jan. 5, 2001. Rawlins and Madsen were at the South Pole to work on  AMANDA, a functioning neutrino detector that is a smaller version of the proposed Ice Cube, which recently received $15 million from Congress.  Both experiments make use of highly sensitive instruments buried up to two and a half kilometers deep under the South Pole ice.
