Extremely Sophisticated DUNE Project Starting Soon at Sanford Lab

The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) taking place between the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead and the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory near Chicago is slated to begin construction shortly. The Rapid City Journal reports that the project, arguably one of the most sophisticated in human history, will see the Fermi lab send a stream of neutrinos towards the receiving facility a mile beneath the surface at the Sanford lab. These tests could reveal what role neutrinos play in the universe, how heavy elements form, and why the universe consists of matter instead of antimatter.
