    Very cool and thanks. I've been to the Soudan mine, went down the shaft (that's a trip) to Soudan Underground Laboratory where they searched for neutrinos and dark matter. The Soudan used to be the deepest place you could go in America. Could still be.

    It's astounding they took all the equipment for the lab in a tiny elevator.

    That’s a lot of Tung-Sol 6550s :)

    Thanks for the share.

    I am fascinated by this sort of thing even though I barely understand it.

    Good article. ya

    I have seen a few on finding neutrinos or
    ghost particles. Very interesting. I guess you need to go deep
    in the earth, to keep the cosmic rays out.

    You'd think scientists could come up with some way to read that article without so much scrolling.

    When I look for anything, its usually under the bed or in the garage. They might want to start there, it could save some time.

    and what about Oldtrinos? how come nobody looks for them?

    I use to have a mess of gravitons in a box in the back yard, but it sunk to the center of the earth. left a neat hole though, if you drop a beer bottle in there, it don't echo or nothin...

    was that written for 5 yr olds? That neutrino was the size of a quarter. I could find a mess them without any problem. Apparently the tank is lined with photomultiplier tubes or some variant, but they don't want anybody trying it at home so they tell you its a reverse light bulb?????

    Cool article... I wish it went into more depth though. I agree the scrolling was a distraction.

    I think we have to blame web developers for that one.
