This unique exhibit features the building and the discoveries of the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) and the facilities and experiments of SNOLAB—an expansion of the original SNO Laboratory, at the Vale Creighton Mine in Sudbury Ontario. SNO Director Dr. Art McDonald was recognized for this work with the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2015.
New Eyes on the Universe presents spectacular images, video, and artifacts from the underground laboratory while sharing the stories of people behind the research. Not only were researchers in the Department of Physics in the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Science involved in the original SNO project, they also play a central role in the next generation of astroparticle physics experiments. The University of Alberta is one of five Canadian universities that jointly own and manage SNOLAB.
