The winner of UCL's annual HEP thesis prize, this paintings describes an research of the information from the second one flight of the Antarctica Impulsive temporary Antenna (ANITA). ANITA is a balloon-borne test that searches for radio signs originating from ultra-high strength neutrinos and cosmic rays interacting with the Antarctic ice or air. the hunt for ultrahigh power neutrinos of astrophysical beginning is likely one of the amazing experimental demanding situations of the twenty first century. The ANITA scan used to be designed to be the main delicate software to ultra-high power neutrinos that originate from the interactions of cosmic rays with the cosmic microwave history. The method and result of the neutrino and cosmic ray searches are awarded within the thesis.
