A new 20,000-pound particle detection system built for a neutrino experiment will be transported 3 miles across the Fermilab campus today. About the size of a small house, it will be the heart of the Short-Baseline Near Detector at Fermilab.

On Nov. 7, a Fermilab crew moved the cryostat vessel for the DUNE Near Detector Liquid Argon Demonstrator (DUNE ND-LAr) prototyping test stand, also known as ArgonCube 2×2, into the MINOS cavern 100 meters underground. From left to right: Matthew Brock, Thomas Olszanowski, John A. Trebe and Thomas Wicks II. Four prototype ArgonCube TPC modules will be installed in this cryostat in 2023. The prototype modules will undergo testing with the NuMI neutrino beam, powered by Fermilab’s Main Injector accelerator.

From the CERN Courier, November 7, 2022: Fermilab’s Joel Butler and a group of scientists describe the recent ‘Snowmass’ community planning exercise in Seattle, Washington which reveal the great opportunities present in high-energy physics in the coming decades.

From the Black Hills Pioneer, November 12, 2022: How do you fit a 3.5 ton piece of steel that is 6 meters long and 2.5 meters wide safely down the Ross Shaft at Sanford Lab? Justin Evans, a professor at Manchester University, explains how the anode plane assembly traveled from the UK to Lead, SD and its roles as a key component to the DUNE experiment.

From Science, September 29, 2022: Fermilab’s DUNE and Japan’s Hyper-K experiments are building similar yet different projects that will study neutrino oscillations and search for CP violation in hopes it will lead to answers on how the newborn universe generated more matter than antimatter. Read more on how these two projects are progressing, how they differ and how they might answer more about the elusive neutrino.

From Science News, September 22, 2022: Emily Conover explains in this video why the universe contain so much more matter than antimatter told through the lens of a classic, 8-bit video game, with matter and antimatter locked in an epic battle for cosmic supremacy. Experiments like DUNE will examine ghostly subatomic particles known as neutrinos to provide clues.
