Speaker's Night: What is DUNE? Embark on the underground telescope to pierce the secrets of matter! (ONLINE)

Wednesday, May 19, 2021 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm

Speaker: Dr. Claire David, Assistant Professor, Physics and Astronomy, York University; Associate Scientist, Fermilab

The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) is an international project dedicated to studying a mysterious particle called the neutrino. They are one of the most abundant elements in the cosmos, yet they barely interact with matter. Trillions are going through your body every second (harmlessly).

Physicists are very curious about the shy neutrinos as this particle alone could help us understand our entire Universe, especially solving a century old mystery: “Why, after the Big Bang, did matter overtake antimatter?”
