Summary

For 2 years, a $500,000 scintillation counter built by Indian scientists has been sitting unused at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) in Batavia, Illinois. The reason: U.S. sanctions, imposed after India's latest nuclear weapons tests, have prevented the team that built the device from coming to the United States to test and install it. But last week, in a development seen as a harbinger of greater cooperation between the two countries, three Indian scientists finally arrived at Fermilab to work on the equipment.
