The NOvA collaboration will start the assembly of its 15,000-ton neutrino detector in Ash River, Minnesota. When complete, the NOvA detector will be one of the largest plastic structures ever to be built. It will comprise 368,640 tubes of white PVC that will support the entire weight of the detector. This time-lapse video shows the assembly of prototype detector blocks at Argonne National Laboratory using custom-made lifting and gluing machines.
