The 35th International Cosmic-Ray Conference took place in Busan, South Korea from July 12th to July 20th, 2017.
More than 800 physicists attended the conference to discuss the latest progress in cosmic-ray and solar physics.
Furthermore, recent developments in gamma-ray and neutrino astronomy as well as the hunt for dark matter were covered. 
The VUB was clearly represented with 10 posters and 4 talks.

Today, a neutrino even more elusive than its fellows is under the spotlight:  the sterile neutrino. Analysing the data collected over the course of a year at the IceCube detector however, scientists did not find any trace of the sterile neutrino. IceCube will update these results with more data and physicists are getting more and more excited to see what else sterile neutrinos could uncover about the ultimate neutrino theory.
