Catching Ghosts: Using Neutrinos to Unveil the Universe
 

Speaker: Dr. Stanley Yen, TRIUMF, UBC

When it comes to studying the nuclear processes in the heart of stars, scientists must turn to neutrinos: subatomic particles that are currently flying unbeknownst through your body by the billions, right this second. These elusive little particles are an excellent probe into the core of the sun and distant supernovae, but they are notoriously difficult to detect. Difficult, but not impossible. Dr Yen will present on the difficulty and triumph of how these particles were detected and studied, and what secrets they reveal about the nature of the universe.
