It would be the world’s most ambitious neutrino experiment. And Fermilab wants everybody to know about it, especially its neighbors.
Neutrinos can easily make their way through the earth and rock between Batavia and a half-mile-deep mineshaft in Soudan, Minnesota, but physicists in the NuMI (Neutrinos at the Main Injector) experiment need the help of a $30.5-million, 20-month excavation effort to create some 4,000 feet of tunnels and other underground experimental areas at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.
On Tuesday, July 20, 1999, scientists and officials of the U.S. Department of Energy, the State of Minnesota, DOE’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and the University of Minnesota will break ground in a former iron mine, now a Minnesota state park.
Officials at the Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory today (August 5) announced the start of construction for a system of automatic gates at the Laboratory’s main entrance at Pine Street and Kirk Road.
Officials at the Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory today (June 12) announced the temporary closing of the Pine Street entrance on the Laboratory’s west side, beginning at 9:00 a.m. on June 13.
