The MINERvA EPO project is finally ready for release. Here it is, after lots of hard work by many people:
This resource allows one to teach particle decay and momentum conservation principles using real data from the MINERvA neutrino experiment!
Try Fe26 and see if you can fuse hydrogen into iron: http://dimit.me/Fe26/

Pointless but strangely amusing:
idly browsing doing research.
The MicroBooNE detector – a 30-ton, 40-foot-long cylindrical metal tank designed to detect ghostly particles called neutrinos – was carefully transported by truck across the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermilab site, from the warehouse building it was constructed in to the experimental hall three miles away.
A good writeup of the MINERvA experiment.
