The Neutrinos at the Main Injector beam facility, known as NuMI, was built at Fermilab so that scientists could have a tunable source of neutrinos with which to conduct experiments. The NuMI beam has been a fantastic success, leading to important measurements made by the MINOS, MINERvA and other experiments. The beam has now been “retuned” to optimize the sensitivity of the NOvA experiment, which expects to have first neutrino oscillation results in 2015. The NuMI beam is produced by…
