Astrophysics

The NOVA experiment uses a 14,000-ton detector to study high energy neutrinos produced at Fermilab and to make indirect dark matter searches and is sensitive to the neutrino bursts from supernova explosions in our galaxy.

The DUNE experiment will use 40,000 tons of liquified argon instrumented with milimeter precision to study solar neutrinos and nuetrinos from supernova bursts.

The HELIX experiment will fly its detector high above Antartica to measure the abundances of isotopes which produce cosmic rays on Earth to understand cosmic ray generation and proagation through the Milky Way
