Small Particles, Big Science: The International LBNF/DUNE Project


[music] This is Fermilab, a Department of Energy national
laboratory near Chicago. It’s the starting place for the Deep Underground
Neutrino Experiment, DUNE, powered by the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility, LBNF. The experiment begins with Fermilab’s accelerator
complex, which moves protons close to the speed of light. It’s all part of an effort by more than a
thousand scientists from around the world to figure out how tiny particles called neutrinos
work, and what role they play in the evolution of
our universe. Neutrinos are the most abundant matter particles
in the cosmos, but very hard to catch. Trillions stream through you every second
without leaving a trace. At LBNF, the beam of protons will smash into
a target, creating the most intense beam of neutrinos
in the world. Scientists will collect data to measure properties
of neutrinos close to the source and again far away. Neutrinos change as they travel, so scientists are sending them straight through 1300 kilometers
of rock toward the DUNE detectors
at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in South Dakota. The detectors can also look for the birth
of neutron stars and black holes by catching neutrinos from exploding stars. The 1.5 kilometer deep detectors will be filled
with 70,000 tons of liquid argon, making them the largest neutrino detectors
in the world. As neutrinos interact with the cold liquid,
they create a shower of other particles and light. Those particle tracks are then picked up by
electronics and transmitted as data to the surface. The information will be analyzed by scientists
at collaborating institutions in countries around the world. They’ll use this data to solve unanswered
questions about neutrinos and maybe even figure out why matter exists – things like planets,
stars, and even you. [music]

  1. Hey, nice soundtrack.Whoever picked the music for this particular video…………good work!

    Oh and if you have any spare neutrinos lying around, could you send them to me. I live in Chicago so the postage will be cheap.

    Keep making these kinds of videos, you guys do such interesting stuff.

  2. So if you detected a sudden burst of neutrinos from say a supernova or black hole. What would that tell you about it? I know how they are created. So I'm curious what you'd learn from them.

  3. Always cool when the [global] scientific community collaborates to answer questions and evolve our species, instead of knowledge hoarding and monetizing.

  4. Could you build a small superhot plasma 'pond' for sanitation trucks to dump their refuse into to disintegrate it, thereby sparing future generations of pollution?

  5. Data!

  6. why are they wasting billions of my tax dollars on junk like this when we could be building a giant wall around china

  7. I'm incredibly excited about the potential discoveries now made possible due to the LBNF/DUNE Project. Best of luck!

  8. Potential applications include harnessing neutrinos for energy – so a universal cosmic well of power.

  9. I remember my elementary school field trip to the fermi lab. i had so much fun! i've always wanted to work there ever since but then realized i had to be an american citizen. FML

  10. It accelerates photons at the speed of light. So its a torch.

    Sounds like a massive waste of money.

  11. So… is that PIP-II that is shown at the 0:21 Mark? http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2405601415005210

  12. what is the path below the surface? Do they suffer any sort of deviation when hit rocks, water and minerals?

  13. I live across the street from Fermilab. This is a fascinating video, but there is so much more to it than what's happening underground – wild prairie, wetlands, buffalo herds, lakes, old farmsteads… just a beautiful place.

  14. This adds radiation to our water table in Batavia, but that's ok, as long as the totally not corrupt US government says it will "not have a significant effect" on our health.

  15. THE REALITY, the Dune experiment has to do with hoarding the worlds gold Supply, which is turned into the white powder gold, or monatomic gold, which is free energy, anti-gravity, and immortality. They have not figured out the immortality part completely that is what the experiments are all about. If you knew what spice from Dune was all about,,, then it all makes sense. If people only knew the truth. These experiments have many levels of disinformation. You have to charge the food of the Gods or monatomic gold, in an inert atmosphere which David Hudson and his tube furnace used with Argon gas which is an inert gas. Only then does the negative hydrogen or nitrogen ion dissipate into gas leaving single atoms of gold, which is supercharged or superphazed to high Consciousness matter or fifth state of matter. Study the secrets I have provided and you will find the truth.
