LEAD — The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is asking 19 Northern Plains tribes to sound off about a proposal that would open the frontiers of science by creating a Long Baseline Neutrino Experiment for physicists to measure how minute particles of matter change form when beamed 800 miles from the prairie of Illinois to the Black Hills of South Dakota.
“By better understanding these strange, elusive particles, scientists seek to better understand the workings of all the universe, one discovery at a time,” says Symmetry, a magazine of the DOE’s Illinois-based Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, where the particles would be launched.
