Astrophysik: Fenster zum Kosmos
Principle model of the AMANDA telescope
AMANDA occupies an ice volume of the form of a cylinder, into which the strings are melted that carry the probes. The model is oriented in a way that the ice shield surface (the South Pole) would be located on top of it. Since the probes are directed to the North with their light-sensitive downside, only signals coming from 'below' are registered.
