Managed by the Universities Research Association, the NuMI (Neutrinos at the Main Injector) Facility and the MINOS (the Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search) experiment are part of the US Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. This site was created to illustrate the NuMI, which is being designed to produce a beam of neutrinos aimed at the Soudan Underground Mine State Park in Tower-Soudan, Minnesota. The Web site discusses the MINOS's goal to discover proof of the existence of neutrinos. Physicists can see images and study the design strategies of the near and far detectors. Visitors can also learn how the scientists intend to produce a unique source of neutrinos. Even though the site is geared towards scientists, the general public will find very informative and comprehensible descriptions of neutrinos, MINOS, and NUMI. Although a few links are only for those immediately involved with the project, the site contains a vast amount of information about the knowledge and technology behind the project.
