Agnes Chavez

New Mexico-based artist Agnes Chavez will work with scientists at Fermilab to explore new ways to use data visualization, light, sound and space to communicate the importance and relevance of science, in particular research on particles called neutrinos.

KOTA-TV of Rapid City, South Dakota speaks with Fermilab’s Mike Gemelli and Steve Brice on the completion of the cavern excavation and the outfitting work ahead to prepare the DUNE detectors for installation.

The Fermilab hosted international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment experiment recently completed the excavation for the detector caverns located almost a mile underground. By the end of the decade, results from DUNE could illuminate why the Universe predominantly consists of matter.

North cavern

The excavation of the caverns that will house the gigantic particle detectors of the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment in Lead, South Dakota is complete. Final outfitting of the colossal caverns will begin soon and make way for the start of the installation of the DUNE detectors later this year.

Massive caverns for DUNE neutrino project nearly excavated

The major part of the excavation of the caverns for the Long Baseline Neutrino Facility at SURF is nearing completion. The caverns will house the very large detectors for the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment in Lead, South Dakota.

Fermilab’s MINERvA experiment was chosen as one of the nine runners up as part of the Physics World 2023 Breakthrough of the Year. The MINERvA research shows how information about the internal structure of the proton can be gleaned from neutrinos scattering from a plastic target.

Catching ghost particles

Although neutrinos are the most common matter particle in the universe they are also known as ghost particles because they move through our bodies every second without ever interacting with us. Neutrinos won’t be scaring anyone on Halloween but they will be studied by scientists in the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment led by Fermilab.

The University of Liverpool is addressing the most fundamental research questions in physics – leading and influencing global discovery driven scientific efforts to advance our understanding and description of nature. Fermilab is included in this video about pioneering precision and neutrino physics experiments, including the Muon g-2 experiment and commentary by Professors Graziano Venanzoni, Muon g-2 co-spokesperson.
