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.
