Sanford Underground Research Facility Evaluated by South Dakota Science and Technology Authority

An evaluation of the Sanford Underground Research Facility was recently conducted by South Dakota’s technology authority board of directors, reports the Black Hills Pioneer.

Sanford Underground Research Facility Executive Director Mike Headley presented a number of updates to the technology authority board, including a projected budget for 2018 in comparison to current year allocations. In 2017, $15 million was allocated to the research facility, $50 million for the long baseline neutrino facility and $12.5 million for the Lux/Zeplin (LZ) project. President Trump’s budget request has similar recommendations for the facility.

Headley also informed the board that a groundbreaking ceremony for the Long Baseline Neutrino Facility is slated for July 21, with construction to begin later in the year.
