SIOUX FALLS, S.D. Far below the Black Hills of South Dakota, crews are building the world's deepest underground science lab at a depth equivalent to more than six Empire State buildings a place uniquely suited to scientists' quest for mysterious particles known as dark matter.

Scientists, politicians and other officials gathered Monday for a groundbreaking of sorts at a lab 4,850 foot below the surface of an old gold mine that was once the site of Nobel Prize-winning physics research.

Default Lux?

Well, at least this "Large Underground Xenon" doesnt sound near as dangerous as CERN or ITER. But then again, we may not be getting the whole story. When there was more disclosure regarding the other two mentioned above, there was a certain amount of public backlash, including lawsuits......

CERN Press Release (http://press.web.cern.ch/press/PressReleases/Releases2009/PR09.09E.html - broken link)

Geneva, 19 June 2009. At the 151st session of the CERN1 (http://press.web.cern.ch/press/PressReleases/Releases2009/PR09.09E.html#footnote1 - broken link) Council today, CERN Director General Rolf Heuer confirmed that the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) remains on schedule for a restart this autumn, albeit about 2-3 weeks later than originally foreseen. Following the incident of 19 September 2008 that brought the LHC to a standstill, a great deal of work has been done to understand the causes of the incident and ensure that a similar incident cannot happen again.
