The GRAND scheme of things
posted by: tbehrens
Project GRAND (Gamma Ray Astrophysics at Notre Dame) is a field of over 100 meters squared that contains sixty four huts with CRDs (Cosmic Ray Detectors). These huts are constantly gathering information, which is then sent to computers in a trailer in the center of the field. (for an aerial view click here)
Christian and C.J. are the RHES interns at project GRAND this summer. Their jobs at project GRAND can vary from day-to-day, from analyzing data to cutting grass to confronting wasp’s nests in huts. They monitor and preform maintenance on the CRDs such as checking and fixing gas leaks in addition to monitoring the circuit boards.
