Abstract:

The usefulness to neutrino and cosmic ray research of a very deep underground laboratory housed in a spherical cavity 100 feet in diameter and 15,000 feet below the surface is described. It appears from this meeting that the two major problems in providing such a location, i.e. temperature and mechanical strength, can be solved within existing technology. Various locations in the United States and South Africa which seem most suitable for such a laboratory were mentioned and the merits of locating below an existing mine, e.g. Anglo-Americans Western Deep Levels west of Johannesburg, were discussed. The estimated cost of the laboratory ranged from 4 to 40 million dollars and the time for construction ranged from under two to eight years, depending on the location. Author
