Muon detector could help UK reduce carbon emissions

A specialist detector which is set to play a fundamental part in helping the UK reduce its carbon emissions is being developed. Muon detectors which exploit cosmic-ray muons, a natural radiation to see through kilometers of rock — in a similar way to X-rays being used to see inside a patient’s body — are being developed to improve monitoring of the process of subsurface carbon storage.
