Latest OPERA Experiment Stories
Scientists have made their most accurate measurement yet of the "ghost particles" known as neutrinos.
An international team including scientists from Princeton University has detected subatomic particles deep within the Earth's interior.
Scientists of the MINOS experiment at the Department of Energyâ€™s Fermi National Accelerator laboratory today (June 14) announced the worldâ€™s most precise measurement to date of the parameters that govern antineutrino oscillations, the back-and-forth transformations of antineutrinos from one type to another.
On Monday, scientists in Europe said they have solved the case of the missing neutrinos, one of the enduring mysteries in the subatomic universe of particle physics.
Physicists may see data as soon as late summer from the prototype for a $278 million science experiment in northern Minnesota that is being designed to find clues to some fundamental mysteries of the universe.
South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds paid a visit to UC Berkeley and Berkeley Lab last Friday (June 12) to get a feel for the type of research operation the campus and the lab plan to build at his state's famed Homestake gold mine.
The IceCube Neutrino Observatory is a neutrino telescope that is currently being built at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. IceCube is being constructed in deep Antarctic ice by deploying thousands of PMTs (photomultiplier tubes) at depths of 4750 to 8000 feet. These spherical optical sensors are deployed on strings of sixty modules each, into holes melted by hot water drilling. Since 2005, 59 strings have been deployed and installation is expected to be complete by 2011. The strings are...
