Three generations of American long-baseline neutrino experiments are captured in one photograph!

The black rectangles near the bottom are pieces of steel from the decommissioned MINOS far detector, which was part of the previous generation of long-baseline neutrino experiments. They are hanging in the hall housing the NOvA far detector, part of the current generation of experiments. We are using them as loads to test a trolley for transporting parts of a prototype for DUNE, a planned experiment in the next generation.
