Neutrino experiment marks first step in transatlantic partnership

The UK government has agreed to invest £65 million in a project on subatomic particles in the United States, as part of its first high-level science and research treaty with the US.

The investment in the project, incorporating the Long Baseline Neutrino Facility and the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, follows the signing of a UK-US Science and Technology Agreement on 20 September.

Researchers participating in the project will examine the properties of particles known as neutrinos in the hope of answering questions about the nature of matter and why the universe survived the Big Bang.
