I am very pleased to have this opportunity to speak to the Kingston community about the science that our team performed that won the Nobel Prize, as well as the science that we continue to perform at one of the lowest radioactivity locations in the world – SNOLAB. This science provides a clearer description of the most fundamental particles in our universe and contributes to our understanding of how the sun burns, how our universe has evolved and its basic composition. I will also discuss some of the fascinating and fun experiences that have occurred over the past year since the award of the Nobel Prize.
