Starting to blast for DUNE

without comments

On June 23, construction workers carried out the first underground blasting at Sanford Lab for the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility, which will provide the space, infrastructure, and particle beam for DUNE. This prep work paves the way for removing more than 800,000 tons of rock to make space for the gigantic DUNE detectors a mile underground. Researchers are also testing materialsthat will be used in producing the most powerful neutrino beam in the world.
Neat.
