Activists claim possible water contamination from radioactive source to be installed at Gran Sasso
This experimental physicist has followed the ICARUS neutrino detector from Gran Sasso to Geneva to Chicago.
This experimental physicist has followed the ICARUS neutrino detector from Gran Sasso to Geneva to Chicago. Physicist Angela Fava has been at the enormous ICARUS detector’s side for over a decade. As an undergraduate student in Italy...Show More Summary
A century and a half earlier, in 1860, St. Gabriel Possenti used handguns to save villagers in Isola del Gran Sasso, Italy from a gang of marauders. This post Recent Maine Self-Defense Shooting Reflects Historic Gun Saint Event appeared first on AmmoLand.com Shooting Sports News.
The inaccessibility of Hotel Campo Imperatore, a ski resort complex high up in the Gran Sasso mountains, made it an ideal spot for placing the Italian Fascist leader Benito Mussolini under house arrest in August, 1943. But even the remote...Show More Summary
Last week, an avalanche engulfed a hotel nestled in the steps of Italy’s Gran Sasso mountain. The avalanche, which struck in the early hours of morning, caused extensive damage to the hotel and claimed at least 7 lives. At least 22 others are still missing. Read more...
Abruzzo, Italy – On Thursday, January 19, 2017 an avalanche came down the slopes of the Gran Sasso mountain range and hit the Hotel Rigopiano in the central Abruzzo region of Italy. Up to 30 people are trapped and are currently missing. Show More Summary
As many as 30 guests are missing following an overnight avalanche at a hotel in Italy’s Gran Sasso mountain area. Poor weather conditions and the remote location of the hotel are making rescue efforts difficult. Read more...
Baldessarini travels to Central Italy for its fall-winter 2016 campaign. Carlos Ferra appears in the advertisement, connecting with photographer Thomas Kettner. Stylist Graziano Di Cintio outfits Carlos in sharp tailoring for the occasion. Show More Summary
The LUNA experiment at the INFN Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy has observed a rare nuclear reaction that occurs in giant red stars, a type of star in which our sun will also evolve. This is the first direct...
Scientists have inaugurated the new XENON1T experiment at Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy. Researchers at a laboratory deep underneath the tallest mountain in central Italy have inaugurated XENON1T, the world’s largest and most...Show More Summary
XMASS is the latest of multiple experiments to contradict a previous dark matter discovery claim, but the conversation isn't over yet. Since 1998, scientists on the DAMA-LIBRA experiment at Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy have...Show More Summary
Going underground most days for work is probably the weirdest-sounding this about this job. At Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso, we use the lab to be underground because of the protection it affords us from cosmic rays, weather, and other disruptions, and with it we get a shorthand description of all the weirdness of lab
A giant neutrino detector is traveling by truck from the Italian Gran Sasso laboratories to CERN to get ready for a new life. Last night a 600-metric-tonne particle detector became the world’s largest neutrino experiment currently on...Show More Summary
Particle physicists working at an underground laboratory underneath Italy’s Gran Sasso mountain cooled an 880-pound mass of copper to -273.144°C/—459.659°F, a mere.006°C away from absolute zero (0°K/-275.15°C/-459.67°F). For about two weeks, it was the coldest object in the observable universe—and by that I mean the coldest...

A treasure trove of dark-matter detectors rests within the deep reaches of Italy's Apennine Mountains as part of Gran Sasso National Laboratory. The mountains shield the detectors from cosmic rays, making them highly sensitive to dark-matter particles.
New results have come in from the Xenon100 experiment, a tub of cryogenically cooled liquid xenon buried 1400 metres down a mine at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory near L'Aquila, Italy that show no sign of WIMPs, or weakly interacting...

The latest results on the time of flight of neutrinos from CERN to the INFN Gran Sasso Laboratory have just been presented. Four experiments -- Borexino, ICARUS, LVD and OPERA -- all measure a neutrino time of flight consistent with the speed of light. Show More Summary
