From Popular Science: A new observatory under construction in China—the Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory, or JUNO—plans to hunt the elusive neutrino with better sensitivity than ever before. Expected to be operational in 2024, this detector will not only be bigger, but also more sensitive to slight variations in neutrinos’ energies than any of its predecessors.

From the The Globe and Mail (Canada), Aug. 5, 2023: Scientists and researchers at SNOLAB are assembling a new experiment known as the Super Cryogenic Dark Matter Search to help solve the mystery of, what is the dark of dark matter? Fermilab associate scientist, Daniel Baxter who worked at the SNOLAB facility two kilometers beneath the Earth’s surface, weighs in.

From PNNL, July 25, 2023: PNNL researchers and a team of university and national laboratory collaborators recently published a paper detailing a new detector design that can be fine-tuned to increase sensitivity to physics beyond the original DUNE concept. The new detector, named SLoMo, will enhances DUNE’s sensitivity to neutrinos emitted from sources other than the beam of neutrinos created at Fermilab.

From the Black Hills Pioneer, July 7, 2023: Over 2,000 people in Lead, South Dakota celebrated Neutrino Day on July 8, organized by the Sanford Underground Research Facility with LBNF and DUNE members participating. The event featured a science comedian, interactive science booths, virtual underground tours as well as speakers on renewable energy and the Long Baseline Neutrino Facility for DUNE.

From CERN, June 13, 2023: Teams at CERN’s Neutrino Platform are currently upgrading and assembling multiple detectors to help large experiments like the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment to uncover the mysteries of neutrinos. But before the full-size detectors are built, CERN has created the large cryostat modules of the ProtoDUNE experiment. The Neutrino Platform is also an assembly station for the Tokai to Kamioka (T2K) experiment in Japan.

You are invited to join a live event at the CERN neutrino platform, Fermilab’s neutrino control room and SURF’s Ross Hoistroom for, “Particle pursuit, a journey of the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment” on June 15 at 11:00 a.m. CDT. All three labs will be broadcasting live simultaneously for a behind scenes tour of the preparations for DUNE and discussing all things neutrinos.
