Scenery and Science in a Physics Wonderland
Ahead on your right is a spiral-shaped building that provides access to the underground areas more than 300 feet below the surface.
There, you can find the NOvA experiment – a long-distance neutrino experiment that operates over 500 miles between Fermilab and Minnesota. DUNE, the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment that is coming to life over the next decade, will study neutrinos over 800 miles. Another experiment that studies neutrinos, MINERvA, is also underground here. Other buildings in this area house MicroBooNE and ICARUS, two additional neutrino experiments revealing new information about those tricky particles.
