A tour to a century old underground mine provides much more than expected.

Very well done, Katie. Both informative and leaving one wanting to know more. I was aware of this project but not with details such as the one about neutrinos being shot from Illinois’ underground location.

Fascinating! They used the term “neutrino waves” on Star Trek. Always interesting when I see something from scifi in the real world.

A fascinating article, it sounds like you had a great day out, it sounds like a great place to visit.

Interesting and definitely out of my understanding. Sure the lab exists for better comprehension of what we need to know about matter except ourselves.

That is really cool. I think this is the same lab that took a photo of the sun – from under the earth (photographic exposure from the neutrinos they are capturing) Unreal!

interesting, there is a lot we don’t know about particles that pass right through us (mobiles, wireless, broadband, microwaves etc) what impact do they have on our organs as they pass through? Maybe this place is helping our understanding

I’ve been in two mines before.One a former gold mine the other an underground cave…also discovered in Minnesota. I don’t pretend to understand that part of science,but it was an interesting article that makes one want to find our more.
