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.

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.
