‘Shifting of neutrino project will be a huge loss to TN’

Experts say the project, once established, could be as famous as CERN’s particle physics lab

The India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO), a major science project of the country, which was all set to come up in Theni in Tamil Nadu, is in danger of being shifted to some other State because of obstacles created by activists.

However, understanding neutrino, an elusive elementary particle, is a frontline problem in modern physics. India can proudly say that the first detection of cosmic-ray produced neutrinos was in the Kolar Gold Field (KGF) experiment in 1965. Now, INO offers new opportunities for exciting scientific discoveries and technological spin-offs.......................Read more
