BATAVIA, Ill., Aug. 17 (UPI) -- A project to fire neutrinos through the earth from Illinois to northern Minnesota is back on track because of U.S. stimulus funds, officials say.
The Fermilab project, called Nova, has been suspended due to funding problems, but now $40 million is going to build a neutrino "detector" in Minnesota and another $103 million is heading to Fermilab for other aspects of the project, including a move to boost the power of the neutrino beam, The Washington Post reported Monday.
Oatmeal -- look up neutrinos on Wikipedia, it's a fun read. Neutrinos do in fact oscillate, changing their "flavor". Too much to explain in a post.
