Nobel Prize winner Art McDonald tells the story of the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory, a Canada-UK-US laboratory 2 km underground, and teaches us how to tell a neutrino from a hole in the ground.

Sudbury Neutrino Observatory observed neutrino properties beyond the Standard Model of Elementary Particles and confirmed models of the sun with great accuracy. Arthur McDonald also talks about future research at SNOLAB, into Dark Matter particles and rare radioactive processes.


This event was organised in partnership with the High Commission of Canada in the United Kingdom.Arthur B McDonald is a Canadian astrophysicist. McDonald is the director of the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory Institute and holds the Gordon and Patricia Gray Chair in Particle Astrophysics at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario.
