Fermilab’s video of the July 21 LBNF/DUNE groundbreaking at Sanford Underground Research Facility is available on the Fermilab YouTube channel.
From The Wall Street Journal, July 21, 2017: Scientists celebrated the launch of an improbable physics experiment that will shoot subatomic particles through 800 miles of rock and dirt to study some fundamental cosmic riddles. [subscription required]
From Science, July 21, 2017: To build the modular detector, workers have to carve out massive caverns 1,480 meters underground, haul out stone that weighs as much as a dozen aircraft carries, and truck in millions of liters of frigid liquid argon. On July 21, officials gathered deep underground to turn the first few shovels of stone.
