One of the central themes of modern physics is the close connection between physics at the smallest possible scales (the fundamental particles of nature and their interactions) and physics at the largest possible scales (the universe as a whole and its evolution).

The SNOLAB Legacy talk is an opportunity to hear about the remarkable evolution of this world-class research facility and the potential for future discoveries, told by SNOLAB’s founding director David Sinclair. Sinclair will discuss how the development of the deep underground laboratory has enabled fundamental scientific advances and promises a rich program of future discovery.
