Super Telescope KM3NeT
We help Nikhef (Dutch National Institute for Subatomic Physics) designing and producing cables for a super telescope that can detect neutrino particles. These particles come from distant astrophysical sources such as supernova’s, gamma rays or colliding stars, and can tell us more about the origin of the universe.
This super-telescope KM3NeT consists of a network of cables and spheres with detectors and reaches a depth of 3 to 5km below the water surface. Because of the great scientific importance, the project is followed by scientists worldwide.
