Title: Latest Results from the IceCube Neutrino Observatory


The world's largest neutrino observatory IceCube is comprised of more than 5000 photomultiplier tubes on 86 strings installed in the Antarctic ice cap at depths from 1450 to 2450 m. An air shower array, called IceTop, is located at the surface. Construction of this multi-purpose detector was completed in December 2010. The detector has been taking data since the deployment of the first string in January 2005. Data has been analyzed for high energy neutrino events of astro-physical origin, cosmic rays, transient sources, dark matter annihilation signals, and various others. After a review of the latest results, the talk will conclude by giving an outlook for potential upgrades to the IceCube detector.
