“DUNE: Piercing the secrets of neutrinos and the Universe” with Dr. Claire David begins at 2 p.m. at the Historic Homestake Opera House.

Particle physicists are very curious about neutrinos. And after Dr. Claire David’s talk, we think you will be, too!

Neutrinos are one of the most abundant elements in the cosmos, and yet they barely interact with matter. Their strange characteristics have fascinated researchers since their discovery, and there’s still much to learn. The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) is an international project dedicated to uncovering the mysteries of neutrinos.

“What are neutrinos? These tiny chunks of matter are as abundant as they are difficult to detect. Embark on DUNE, the future underground telescope that will unveil the mysteries behind neutrinos and help us better understand the Universe!” said David, assistant professor of physics at York University and member of the DUNE collaboration.
