In 2018, the IceCube collaboration reported evidence for the identification of a blazar as an astrophysical neutrino source. That evidence is briefly summarised here before focusing on the prospects of tau neutrino physics in IceCube, both at high energies (astrophysical neutrinos) and at lower energies (atmospheric neutrino oscillations). In addition, future neutrino detectors such as KM3NeT and the IceCube Upgrade and their tau neutrino physics potential are discussed. Finally, the detection mechanism for high-energy (tau) neutrinos in the Pierre Auger Observatory and the resulting flux upper limits are presented.

List of changes
In the captions of figures 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8, a reference is added to the original source.
p 5 caption fig 3: most probably -> most probable
p 8 caption fig 6: end with a period.
p 9: I thought the accepted acronym for Pierre Auger Observatory is PAO
p 9: travelling a relatively long distances -> travelling a relatively long distance
p 9 two bullet points: end with period.
p 10: PA can set -> PAO has set
p 10: 0.29:0.50:0.29, which is consistent with -> 0.29:0.50:0.29, which is consistent within the uncertainties with
ref 8: added that this is a Neutrino2018 conference talk
