Why a new neutrino telescope? Because we can.

Project description

Breakthrough underwater telescope on the hunt for cosmic neutrinos

Cosmic neutrinos could reveal the processes occurring at the edge of supermassive black holes. Huge telescopes several cubic kilometres of ice or water instrumented with thousands of light sensors are required to track them. The sensors capture the light trail created by the collision of a neutrino with a water molecule, enabling scientists to determine the neutrino’s energy and direction of origin. The EU-funded NEUTRINOSHOT project will develop a new observatory for cosmic neutrinos in the Pacific Ocean, the Pacific Ocean Neutrino Experiment (P-ONE). The new multi-line array neutrino telescope will be able to function in extreme deep sea conditions with sensitivities several orders of magnitude better than state of the art.
