Earth Work Starts on the NOvA Experiement

The NOvA detector, a neutrino detector placed 50 feet underground near the US-Canada border in Ash River, MN, is slowly ramping up. Crews have started clearing away the location where the facilities and detector will be located, and soon they'll start blasting their way down to the depth that will eventually allow the detector to operate without all the electromagnetic noise that is so prevalent on the surface of the Earth. More about NOvA and it's partner neutrino generator, NuMI, can be found here. ]
