DUNE Project Will Be SD's Largest Ever

The Sanford Underground Research Facility will be conducting an experiment, called the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) in coordination with the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory outside of Batavia, IL. According to the Rapid City Journal article, once the nearly $300 million investment and construction project is completed at the Sanford site, the Fermi lab will beam a stream of neutrinos from a mile underground towards the Sanford lab 800 miles away, where researchers will measure their properties, which could yield answers to what role neutrinos play in the universe.
