Neutrino research takes giant leap forward

The Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF) will house the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), which will be built and operated by roughly 1,000 scientists and engineers from 30 countries. With the groundbreaking for the LBNF and DUNE projects, the United States is taking the lead in further unveiling the elusive neutrino particle.
