Caption: Soudan II detector. View of the Soudan II proton decay detector, which is located some 880 metres (2600 feet) underground in the Tower-Soudan iron mine at Soudan, Minnesota, USA. 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 built underground to isolate it from most cosmic ray particles. Photographed in 1997.
