Caption: Old mine buildings at Soudan, Minnesota. The mine is now the site of the Soudan II detector, a particle physics experiment. Located some 880 metres (2600 feet) underground, the detector is a 960 ton iron calorimeter whose primary physics goals are to search for proton decay, study atmospheric neutrino physics (especially evidence for neutrino oscillation), and search for magnetic monopoles. The detector was completed in 1993, but started taking data when one quarter built in 1989. It is located underground to isolate it from most cosmic ray particles. Photographed in 1997.
