The third cluster of a neutrino detector was installed in Baikal, to study the universe
The telescope consists of independent structural units, called clusters. Each of the clusters consists of 288 optical detectors connected as eight garlands, which are immersed at the bottom of the lake.
It is assumed that the first stage of construction of a neutrino telescope will be completed in 2021. The next stage will include the deployment of 27 clusters, but the issues of further financing and the timing of the completion of the project are still open.
The scientists believe that large deep-water neutrino telescopes, provided they reach certain size, would open the era of neutrino astronomy, which involves studying the structure and processes of the universe at incredibly huge distances.
