Caption: View along one side of the enormous neutrino detector (Experiment 734) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), Long Island. Protons generated in BNL's AGS accelerator strike a target to produce a beam of neutrinos which travel through 40 metres of solid steel (to stop all other particles except the neutrino) before striking the detector. The detector is 21 metres long & as tall as a two-storey building. It consists primarily of sandwiched calorimeters and proportional drift chambers, with gamma catcher and a muon spectrometer at the end. Its main purpose is to study neutrino-electron scattering events. (June '84)
