New National Science Lab? 16

Schwamm writes: "CNN.com has a story about a possible new national science lab that would be built in a soon-to-be abandoned gold mine in South Dakota. The only catch is that the bills need to get through Congress by the end of the year, when the current owner of the mine will abandon it. This would be an awesome lab--the "Cape Canaveral of Physics.""

    It looks more comparable to Poker Flats, AK; certainly not to Johnson or Kennedy (canaveral).
