Status of the Antares project

Abstract : The ANTARES collaboration is building a neutrino telescope in the Mediterranean sea close to the French coast. The project aims to detect atmospheric and extraterrestrial neutrinos with energies above 10 GeV by means of the Cherenkov light that is generated in water by charged particles which are produced in neutrino interactions. The project and its physics potential will be described and the construction status will be illustrated.
