Economic Impact: Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment

The Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF) will be the world's flagship science project to unlock the mysteries of neutrinos, the particles that could be the key to explaining why matter exists in our universe.  It will house the infrastructure and particle detectors for the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) at the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) located in Lead, SD.  About 1,000 scientistes from more than 160 laboratories and universities in 30 countries are contributing to this international mega-science project.  The projected economic impact to the state of South Dakota is estimated at $952 million in total economic output with $340 million income for South Dakota households.
