[Nobel Plinth]A plinth commemorating the Nobel Prize-winning neutrino discoveries of the team at the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) scientific collaboration led by Dr. Art McDonald, Gordon and Patricia Gray Chair in Particle Astrophysics Emeritus in the Department of Physics, Engineering Physics, and Astronomy at Queen’s, has been installed between Ontario and Grant Halls.

The plinth was recently unveiled at a special event held at the Agnes, but at the time it could not be permanently installed due to the weather. To learn more about the Nobel plinth, please see this Gazette article.

The plinth is a part of the Queen's Remembers series. Previous Queen’s Remembers plinths have recognized the traditional inhabitants of the Kingston area—the Anishinaabe and the Haudenosaunee peoples—and the 5th Field Company, a group of soldiers primarily comprised of Queen’s students and faculty who served and gave their lives in both World Wars.
