A king and lawgiver of Crete, fabled to be the son of Jupiter and Europa. After death he was made a judge in the Lower Regions.
King of the Greek island of Crete. King Minos' pride in refusing to sacrifice a special white bull to the gods caused them to make his wife Pasiphae fall in love with the bull and give birth to the Minotaur. When his son Androgeous was murdered in Athens, he forced the Athenians to give seven youths and seven maidens every year to be thrown into the Labyrinth and devoured by the Minotaur.
son of Zeus and Europa; king of ancient Crete; ordered Daedalus to build the labyrinth; after death Minos became a judge in the underworld
In Greek mythology, Minos (Greek , genitive ) was a legendary king of Crete, son of Zeus and Europa. After his death, Minos became a judge of the dead in Hades. The Minoan civilization has been named after him.
An experiment, that uses an accelerator at Fermilab to send a beam of neutrinos to the Soudan Mine to search for the oscillation of muon neutrinos. For more information see: http://www-numi.fnal.gov/.
An experiment consisting of two detectors, one at Fermilab and one at Soudan mine, 735 km away. The objective is to detect a change in composition of a neutrino beam between the two detectors indicating neutrino oscillation.
MINOS (or Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search) is an particle physics experiment designed to study the phenomena of neutrino oscillations, first discovered by Super-Kamiokande experiment in 1998. Neutrinos produced at Fermilab by the Nu MI (Neutrinos at Main Injector) beamline are observed at two detectors, one very close to where the beam is produced (the near detector), and another much larger detector 735 km away in northern Minnesota (the far detector).
