Fountain of LUX!
This week LUX is filling up its surrounding water tank. The water tank is used to protect the detector from stray neutrons and small gamma radiation that the underground lab cannot protect from.

Also, surrounding a sensitive detector in very pure water is a delicate matter so keep your fingers crossed! Read more about the water tank in the Deep Thoughts linked below.'Fountain of LUX' flowing
