From Rapid City Journal, Nov. 29, 2017: For more than five years, Ross Shaft crews have been stripping out old steel and lacing, cleaning out decades of debris, adding new ground support and installing new steel to prepare the shaft for its future role in world-leading science. On Oct. 12, all that hard work paid off when the team, which worked its way down from the surface, reached a major milestone: the 4850 Level. Deputy Director Chris Mossey weighs in.
From USA Today, Aug. 9, 2017: Fermilab’s Bonnie Fleming and Chris Mossey talk about DUNE, LBNF, and how we can answers to questions about our universe may depend on once again striking gold in a mine buried a mile underground in rural South Dakota.
From LiveScience, July 21, 2017: On the occasion of the LBNF/DUNE groundbreaking, Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln explains why neutrinos are so compelling.
From Popular Mechanics, July 21, 2017: The DUNE experiment will study neutrinos and antineutrinos and possibly unravel the secrets of the universe.
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]
