IceCube Neutrino Observatory

“Located at the South Pole, the IceCube Neutrino Observatory will, as its name implies, look for tiny, subatomic particles called neutrinos, which are produced by nuclear reactions that take place in the cores of stars and in other deep-space phenomena.”

Cutting Edge Science at the Bottom of the World

Carl G. Jung would have been impressed too I'm sure. He and Wolfgang Pauli and Jungian analyses is where I first heard about the "neutrino" problem. Great project I hope it leads to better info.

I have great hopes for the new national center for "neutron activation" which can find quantitative info for those pesky trace elements, once thought to assist in the origins of minerals to sources, i.e., turquoise traded to Aztecs from which ancient mine in the American Southwest, a real archaeology chemistry project in part funded by the National Science Foundation at Brookhaven National Lab with Phil Weigand, PhD. and Emeritus Garman Harbottle. Maybe we can put some of those heads back on the right statues and find where they were mined.
