From Sanford Lab, May 10, 2021: Activities at the Sanford Underground Research Facility will have significant benefits for the state of South Dakota over the next decade.
Fermilab contractors have successfully commissioned a system that will move 800,000 tons of rock to create space for the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment’s detectors in South Dakota. Excavation crews will transport the rock from a mile underground to the surface using refurbished mining infrastructure and the newly constructed conveyor system.
From Queen Mary University of London, April 24, 2021: Dr. Kirsty Duffy, who works on the MicroBooNE experiment, received the prestigious Ernest Rutherford Fellowships from the Science and Technology Facilities
From the Black Hills Pioneer, March 25, 2021: Ross Hoists will power the excavation of 800,000 tons of waste rock and serve as the conveyance for people, materials and equipment underground of the DUNE at LBNF.
Dr. Kirsty Duffy talks about how we can see the invisible with detectors. She shares the bizarre story of the first neutrino detector: Project Poltergeist. Plus, MicroBooNE scientist Katrina Miller shows us the materials used to build modern detectors — and what scientists see when a neutrino finally says hello.
