The Central Government of India will be setting up the Indian Neutrino Observatory. Here are the details.

What is a Neutrino Observatory?

It is a facility set up in order to conduct research into particle physics. It gets its name from the fact that neutrinos are the smallest particles in the universe. The aim is to study the properties of these particles, whose main source of energy is the Sun and the Earth’s atmosphere.

Its Location And Function

The observatory will be located in the Bodi West Hills, in the district of Theni, Tamil Nadu.

This location has been chosen because it is the optimal position to conduct astronomical searches spanning the whole celestial sky and to study solar neutrinos passing through the Earth’s core from.

The Neutrino Detector will use a magnetized iron calorimeter, which will be used to probe the effects of the Earth’s matter on the movement of neutrinos, and can detect oscillation parameters in the 2-3 oscillation sector, and it shall be the heaviest one used by any country.

Is It Dangerous?

Scientists have confirmed that any fears (such as those of endangering local wildlife, radiation, structural damage to the mountainous area or the release of harmful chemicals) are baseless.
