NEW EYES ON THE UNIVERSE
Science Café presents:
New Eyes on the Universe: A guided tour of the SNOLAB exhibit
Andrew Erlandson, PhD candidate
Department of Physics
Location: Fenn Lounge, Residence Commons, Carleton University
Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at 6.30 pm
Experience the travelling exhibit showcasing the science of the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) and SNOLAB with guide Andrew Erlandson. A doctoral candidate in Carleton’s Department of Physics, Andrew works closely with Dr. Mark Boulay on DEAP – a SNOLAB experiment which searches for dark matter, one of the Universe’s biggest mysteries. Andrew will help explain the connections between neutrinos, dark matter, and the rest of the universe based on his first-hand experience in the field. Through SNOLAB’s research, both past and present, we have never been closer to seeing the big picture. This exhibit will take you on a journey from the depths of the Earth to the far reaches of the cosmos guided by your own personal physicist.
