The recent development of smart sensors connected through a network is enabling new types of scientific experiments of unprecedented scale at extreme locations. One such experiment is the IceCube neutrino observatory being completed at the geographical South Pole. IceCube's main scientific goals are to detect astrophysical sources of high-energy neutrinos and solve the mystery of the origin of cosmic rays.
