The SNOLAB Legacy

with David Sinclair, Distinguished Research Professor of Physics at Carleton University and Founding Director, SNOLAB

One of the central themes of modern physics is the close connection between physics at the smallest possible scales (the fundamental particles of nature and their interactions) and physics at the largest possible scales (the universe as a whole and its evolution). In this talk I will try to demonstrate some of these connections and discuss how the development of a deep underground laboratory, SNOLAB has enabled fundamental advances in this study and promises a rich program of future discovery. The talk is aimed at a general audience and students of all backgrounds are welcome.
