India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO)

"Each adds a little to our understanding of nature, and from all the facts assembled arises a certain grandeur." — Aristotle
* INO is a multi-institutional collaboration which aims to build an underground laboratory for pure Science research, especially in Neutrino Physics. The project includes construction of an iron calorimeter detector, called ICAL, that will be the world's most massive detector when completed. ICAL at INO holds the key to understanding several fundamental issues regarding the nature and interactions of neutrinos.
