Neutrinos

His personal Facebook page

Mike Headley, Executive Director of the South Dakota Science and Technology Authority and the Lab Director at Sanford Underground Research Facility reflects on the accomplishments in 2017 and gives us a preview of what’s to come. 

We discuss the construction, the experiments, and what it takes to continue to do deep underground science when people don’t really understand what it is they’re doing.

Fermilab

Innovation ... July 7,2017 Hour 2

Neutrino Day is held in Lead, South Dakota because solar neutrinos were discovered there. Bonnie Fleming, a Yale University physics professor and neutrino oscillation researcher, tells Cara how a man named Ray Davis first identified solar neutrinos. She shares why neutrinos will soon be shot from Fermilab in Illinois to the Sanford Underground Research Facility in South Dakota, and addresses the question: Are neutrinos the reason we exist?

In The Moment ... May 15, 2017 Show 093 Hour 1

If you relaxed with a cold drink this week after a long day of work outside, you might have reached for a locally brewed craft beer. The industry is growing in South Dakota, with more consumers seeking out local offerings. For American Craft Beer Week, we're joined by some of the region's top brewers ... Ermin Husidic from Miner Brewing Company in Hill City and Ricardo Tarabelsi from Fernson Brewing Company in Sioux Falls.

Dr. Luke Corwin and Dr. Juergen Reichenbacher – both are School of Mines physicists who are leaders on the DUNE project.  DUNE stands for Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment. Next week more than 150 scientists from around the world will meet in the Black Hills to collaborate on the project. The DUNE international megascience neutrino experiment is between the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead and the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory near Chicago. DUNE is considered the world’s flagship neutrino project, driven by scientists from 27 countries.

LBNF Experiment

Jun 12, 2015

Josh Willhite, project manager for the Long Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF), and Jared Heise, science director at the Sanford Lab, discussed the LBNF experiment and its construction.  The LBNF will send a beam of neutrinos through the earth from the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory near Batavia, Illinois to the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead.  A series of public meetings are scheduled to discuss the environmental impacts during the construction of the project.  The meetings are June 17 at 6:30 p.m.

The Annual CETUP Conference

Jul 25, 2013

We meet three theoretical physicists who were in Deadwood for the annual CETUP conference. CETUP stands for Center for Theoretical Underground Physics and Related Areas. We meet Jason Kumar, Bhaskar Dutta and Kaladi Babu as they discuss studies related to dark matter and neutrinos. Watch the interviews on YouTube.
