ICARUS neutrino experiment to move to Fermilab
The Italian experiment - the world's largest of its type - will become an integral part of the future of neutrino research in the United States. A group of scientists led by Nobel laureate Carlo Rubbia will transport the world's largest liquid-argon neutrino detector across the Atlantic Ocean to its new home at the U.S. Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.
The deadline has been postponed to May 10, 2015
