Small Particles, Big Science: The International LBNF/DUNE Project

Neutrinos are the most abundant matter particles in the universe, yet very little is known about them. This animation shows how the Department of Energy's Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility will power the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment to help scientists understand the role neutrinos play in the universe.
