In view of a recent breakthrough in multimessenger astrophysics, led by the IceCube Neutrino Observatory at the South Pole, the American National Science Foundation (NSF) will organize a press conference at its headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia, on Thursday July 12th 2018 at 11:00h a.m. EDT (17:00h Brussels time).
Since scientists of the Inter-university Institute for High Energies, IIHE(ULB-VUB), in Brussels are involved in this research, a presentation on IceCube and its research and a live streaming of the press conference will be organized at the university campus Etterbeek of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB).
We cordially invite you to attend the event at the VUB. Feel free to share this information with those who might be interested to join the event in Brussels.
