IceCube is a neutrino telescope built into the ice at the south pole. IceCube is sensitive to tracks as produced by charged current interactions from muon Neutrinos and cascades produced by other flavors and the neutral current. Due to recent machine-learning-based advances in reconstruction, the precision of the pointing and background rejection have improved significantly, and IceCube has been able to detect neutrino emission from the Galactic Plane. Localized emission opens up a wide variety of new physics searches, many based on astrophysical flavor ratios. IceCube as a detector, the recent Galactic Plane result, and the use of IceCube as a vehicle to detect Beyond the Standard Model Physics are discussed.
