SD Governor Praises Underground Science Lab



Bookmark and Share

Gov. Mike Rounds says an underground science lab being developed in the former Homestake gold mine in South Dakota's Black Hills will boost research and education worldwide.

Rounds spoke in a video link Wednesday with people gathered at a conference in Virginia dealing with improving the Internet. Scientists nearly a mile underground in the mine also took part.

The conference unveiled an abbreviated version of a new video about the underground lab that will be made available to schools.  South Dakota already has spent $65 million to convert the former gold mine into an underground science lab. The state hopes the National Science Foundation will take over funding next year to turn the mine into a national underground physics lab.
