Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNOLAB)

Located 2,070 metres below the surface of Creighton Mine near Sudbury, Ontario, this detector was designed to pick up solar neutrinos through their interactions with a large tank of heavy water. The Nobel Prize for Physics was awarded to SNOLAB director and Canadian astrophysicist, Arthur B. McDonald, for the discovery of neutrino masses.
