NuMI/MINOS facts for neighbors
The Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search, or MINOS experiment, located half a mile underground in the historic Soudan iron mine in northeastern Minnesota, will probe the secrets of subatomic particles called neutrinos. The neutrinos will be produced at a particle accelerator at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory near Chicago. Beginning in late January, 2005, neutrinos in the NuMI (for "Neutrinos at the Main Injector") beam will travel 450 miles straight through the earth, from Fermilab to Soudan-no tunnel needed.
