order has been placed at SCIONIX B.V., Bunnik, NL to
construct for EARTH four test cells, and fill two of them
with a Boron loaded scintillation liquid. These test cells
will be tested at iThemba LABS, South Africa to optimise the
scintillation liquid for the 40 litre prototype detector
GiZA (Geoneutrinos in ZA) at the end of 2008. The GiZA
detector has been

optimised for light collection by ASTRON, Dwingeloo, NL. The
order includes the mechanical design of the GiZA detector.
This order has been made possible by an approved proposal to
Stichting Sensor Universe foundation, Assen, NL.
Polyvation B.V., Groningen and EARTH have
received approval Sensor Universe of their feasibility study
to search for new material suitable for direction sensitive antineutrino detection.
