The IceCube neutrino observatory under construction at the South Pole is designed to detect high energy (TeV-PeV) neutrino emission from astrophysical objects, such as the sources of galactic and extragalactic cosmic rays. Data is being taken with the partially- built detector, now half complete with 40 strings and 2400 optical modules, and initial results are now available. In addition to astrophysical studies, IceCube also has a broad particle physics program that will be enhanced by the addition of the IceCube Deep Core, a dense, contained subarray that will push IceCube’s energy reach down to 10-20 GeV and improve its sensitivity to dark matter, point sources of neutrinos in the Southern Hemisphere, neutrino oscillations, and supersymmetric particles and other exotica.
