MINOS is a long-baseline neutrino experiment. The Far Detector is located in the lab and is at the receiving end of the beam of neutrinos created at the Fermi National Accelerator Lab. It seeks to shed light on the phenomenon of neutrino oscillation.
CDMSII uses very cold and super-sensitive semiconducting detectors to look for the prime suspect in the "Dark Matter" mystery: Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPS).
Located in Ash River, MN the NOvA experiment is a long-baseline neutrino experiment searching for muon neutrino to electron neutrino oscillation.
The Low Background Counting Facility (LBCF) will be a facility to provide researchers a place to make very low level measurements. It will include extra passive shielding (in addition to that naturally afforded by the lab) as well as an active veto shield.
MINOS and CDMS aren't the first underground experiments in the Soudan Lab. Their scientific forefathers include the Soudan I and Soudan II experiments.
The ancient rock of the Soudan Mine has some scientifically interesting and aesthetically pleasing formations. This is a web exclusive! Visitors are ordinarily unable to see these formations due to their locations throughout the mine.
