Caption: View of the headquarters of the Gran Sasso Laboratory, Italy. The largest underground physics centre in the world, it studies the properties of subatomic particles from astrophysical sources. The experiments involve the detection of neutrinos, emitted by the Sun and supernovae explosions, high-energy particles in cosmic rays, and magnetic monopoles. The laboratory itself lies off a tunnel 1400 metres beneath the Gran Sasso massif in central Italy.
