PhD student Ben Tam is part of the team working on the SNO+ experiment – working two kilometers deep in a mine outside Sudbury to detect rare nuclear decays by looking for neutrinos. Neutrinos are difficult to detect, and require a huge, ultra-pure detecting medium and exquisitely sensitive sensors to see their interactions. Listen to Ben describe the experiment, and join him deep underground to understand the work of particle astrophysicists.

Listen to the hour-long program tonight:
