The $3 Billion DUNE Experiment in South Dakota

By: April Carson

In the depths of South Dakota, beneath the rocky terrain near Lead, lies a groundbreaking experiment that could unlock some of the universe's most profound mysteries. Almost seven years ago, crews embarked on a colossal endeavor, extracting 800,000 tons of rock from a former gold mine, giving rise to three caverns, each 500 feet long and towering almost as tall as a seven-story building.

This monumental $3 billion project, known as DUNE (Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment), is spearheaded by the brilliant minds at the US Department of Energy's Fermilab. The mission is to delve into the secrets of elusive particles called neutrinos, often referred to as "ghost particles."

Neutrinos, ubiquitous yet enigmatic, are subatomic particles generated by various cosmic phenomena, from the sun and supernovae to, surprisingly, bananas. These particles, lacking an electric charge, nonchalantly traverse through matter, earning them the moniker "ghost particles." In fact, physicist Mary Bishai, a spokesperson for DUNE, highlights that as you raise your hand, an astonishing 10 billion neutrinos from the sun pass through it every second, entirely unnoticed.

The inherent challenge in studying neutrinos arises from their elusive nature. With no electric charge and minimal interaction with matter, neutrino interactions are akin to finding needles in a haystack, as explained by Mary Bishai. Yet, the potential they hold for unraveling the universe's mysteries propels scientists to persist in their quest.

DUNE aims to revolutionize neutrino research by constructing the most extensive neutrino detectors ever built. Each of the three caverns will house 17,500 tons of liquid argon, a vital component aiding Fermilab physicists in detecting these elusive particles. The experiment is designed to start with powerful particle accelerators at Fermilab, situated outside Chicago, firing an intense beam of neutrinos through a detector at Fermilab. The journey continues underground, spanning 800 miles to reach the detectors at the South Dakota Sanford Underground Research Facility.

In this underground odyssey, neutrinos exhibit a peculiar behavior known as oscillation, where they transition between three different types. Visualized as a house cat transforming into a jaguar and then a tiger before reverting to its original form, this oscillation phenomenon holds the key to understanding the fundamental nature of neutrinos.

The significance of the South Dakota location extends beyond its geological attributes. The experiment's subterranean position, a mile below the Earth's surface, shields the delicate neutrinos from the constant barrage of cosmic rays, ensuring the accuracy and integrity of the data collected.

DUNE represents a leap forward in neutrino research, promising to provide scientists with an unprecedented understanding of these ghostly particles. From uncovering the events post-Big Bang to witnessing the birth of a black hole, the experiment is poised to shed light on the most profound mysteries of our universe. As DUNE inches closer to completion, the scientific community eagerly awaits the revelations that may reshape our comprehension of the cosmos.
