Sanford Underground Research Facility

From Seeker, June 17, 2018: The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment wants to solve one of the biggest mysteries in science today, namely, why do we exist? Fermilab scientist Bonnie Fleming appears in this 6-minute explainer video.

From Black Hills Pioneer, June 4, 2018: Mike Headley, South Dakota Science and Technology Authority executive director and laboratory director, and Josh Willhite, Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility far site manager for the Sanford Underground Research Facility, updated the public on the progress being made on DUNE taking place at Fermilab in Illinois.

From Sanford Underground Research Facility’s Deep Thoughts, June 4, 2018: Building the largest international neutrino experiment on U.S. soil requires innovative engineering solutions. Fermilab Deputy Director for LBNF Chris Mossey gives us a glimpse of the challenges of building the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility.

In support of Fermilab’s role as the host laboratory for LBNF/DUNE, the laboratory is establishing a new Fermilab division that will be located and operate at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in South Dakota. Named the South Dakota Services Division, it will provide the same range of operational and support services that exist at Fermilab’s main campus in Batavia. Fermilab Deputy Director for LBNF Chris Mossey serves as the acting head of the new division. Additional details will be provided… More »
