Neutrinos and Experimental Physics with Art McDonald, 2015 Nobel laureate in physics

Art McDonald, the former director of SNO and 2015 Nobel Prize in physics laureate, gives a really nice talk at the Perimeter Institute. I was expecting a rather dull review of his pathway to the SNO neutrino mass measurement papers in 2002-2004 (for which the Nobel was awarded) — but he has been busy!

The Astonishing Simplicity of Everything

This is a really nice and easy to follow lecture by the director of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics (PI), Neil Turok, called “The Astonishing Simplicity of Everything”. PI is a top-tier research centre for theoretical physics, located in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. It is really exciting to see how much physics in Canada hasContinue reading “The Astonishing Simplicity of Everything”
