Neutrino detector exhibit. Deep-sea photon detector with 31 photomultiplier tubes being exhibited at a science open day. Arrays of these detectors are to be be placed in the Mediterranean Sea to create the KM3NeT (Cubic Kilometre Neutrino Telescope) to detect neutrinos after they have passed through the Earth. Neutrinos are subatomic particles with a very small mass that are very difficult to detect. This exhibit was photographed on 1 October 2016 at the NIKHEF (National Institute for Subatomic Physics) building at the University of Amsterdam Science Park, Amsterdam, the Netherlands. This open day is part of the wider 'Weekend of Science' (weekend van de wetenschap) held in the Netherlands. Scientific institutions throughout the country hold public events and displays.
