On view in the Agnes Atirum, 27 May through 7 July during gallery hours, a special display and Queen’s University 175th Anniversary capstone project: see how the basic laws of particle physics were redefined in “New Eyes on the Universe,” an exhibit featuring the discoveries of the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO), the recognition of this work with a Nobel Prize in Physics in 2015 for SNO Director, Dr Arthur McDonald, and the facilities and experiments of SNOLAB.
Admission is free. Don’t miss this extraordinary short-term display celebrating revolutionary research that changed our understanding of the universe and the particles that stream through our environment (and us!) every moment.
When you visit the Agnes, don’t forget to visit the galleries, and stop into the publication lounge to pick up your copy of “Neutrinos They are Very Small.” This little book documents artists Sally McKay, Gordon Hicks and Rebecca Diederichs creative responses to the SNOLAB, advanced particle research processes and lab’s award-winning insights into the nature and behaviour of subatomic particles.
