In addition, the lab acts as a space for students and faculty to participate in the Mini-BooNE
(Mini-Booster Neutrino Experiment) Collaboration project. The experiment, which takes place at Fermilab
(a lab just outside of Chicago), is a collaborative project where scientists search for massive neutrinos. While the neutrino, a subatomic particle, was previously thought to be massless, recent detection of neutrino oscillations points to the fact that at least two of the three neutrino species in our universe truly have mass. How much mass? That is what we are trying to find out.
