Sanford Underground Research Facility

From Black Hills Pioneer, Sept. 25, 2018: Two years in the making, a neutrino detector built at CERN for the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment , which is being used as the prototype for the much larger Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility, detectors that will be housed at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead, South Dakota, has recorded its first particle tracks.

The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment is advancing technology commonly used in dark matter experiments—and scaling it up to record-breaking sizes.

From Sanford Underground Research Facility’s Deep Thoughts, July 17, 2018: Nearly 1,500 people attended activities at Sanford Lab’s free science festival in Lead, South Dakota, breaking the single-day record.
