The Sudbury Neutrino Laboratory (SNOLAB) will be the topic of discussion at the May 8 Science Café at the Laughing Buddha Café.
The SNOLAB is a world-class particle research facility, located two kilometres below the ground at the Vale Creighton mine in Lively.
The Science Café, starting at 7:30 p.m., will focus on how and why SNOLAB hunts for the elusive dark matter and neutrino particles. Participants will have the opportunity to debate the value of fundamental physics research.
Panellists for the evening will include:
