Neutrino Hunting Using High Altitude Balloons and Antarctica

Watch the talk (running time 46:37)

Antarctica is the only continent reserved entirely for peace and science. NASA's long-duration high altitude balloon program is one example of unique science done on the continent. I will describe my experience working "on the ice" using the two programs. In particular, we looked for high energy neutrinos striking the ice, which served as a 1 million square kilometer telescope for neutrinos. We also performed research in the Antarctic deep field, using resources provided by the United States Antarctic Program. I will describe how the program supports scientists' need to go "into the field" in Antarctica.
