The President's FY 2003 funds Request for the nationwide technological know-how beginning (NSF) below the most important learn apparatus and amenities development Account referred to as for a countrywide learn Council (NRC) evaluate of the clinical advantages of IceCube and different proposed U.S. neutrino tasks within the context of present and proposed features during the international. The NRC committee-the Neutrino amenities evaluation Committee (NFAC)-was charged with delivering medical exams of 2 attainable destiny technology projects: (1) IceCube, a really huge quantity detector of high-energy neutrinos proposed for the South Pole and (2) a potential deep underground technological know-how facility to be constructed within the usa to pursue a wide variety of basic questions in physics and astronomy. Fourteen people have been appointed to the committee, and the 1st assembly was once held in June 2002, with supply of the ultimate file anticipated inside 6 months. The committee's evaluate was once to be played within the context of present and deliberate neutrino services during the international. particularly, the examine used to be to deal with the original functions of every classification of recent test and any attainable redundancy among the 2 forms of facility.
