Abstract
Years of R & D allowed the overcoming of the main technological problems in the establishment of the ICARUS prototype, technology. A major step of the ICARUS scientific program has been the construction and testing of a 10 m( 3), which paved the way for the installation of the first 600 t ICARUS modu le. We present a summary of the basic principles of the ICARUS technique an d some of the events collected exposing the 10 m(3) module to cosmic rays a t LNGS, from February to May 2000.
