Which is great, because I understand we have LOTS of neutrinos here ….
The University of Minnesota and the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory plan to break ground south of International Falls today on a multimillion-dollar project designed to help understand the universe.
The NuMI Off-Axis Electron Neutrino Appearance Experiment (NOvA) will be the Northland’s second detector studying subatomic particles being shot through the earth from near Chicago. Learning more about the mysterious particles, called neutrinos, will help scientists better understand how the universe formed and how it will develop.
This is very interesting work. And the Soudan Mines is a very interesting visit, if you are ever in the area. But wear a jacket, it gets cold down there.
