For nearly three decades, Dr. Raymond Davis Jr., a chemist from Brookhaven National Laboratory, operated his solar neutrino experiment nearly a mile underground at Homestake Gold Mine. His pioneering work raised eyebrows in neutrino research and, ultimately, earned him a share of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2002.
Join Dr. Jaret Heise, science director at SURF, to learn more about Davis’ work at Homestake—how it advanced the field of neutrino science and the role it played in creating the Sanford Underground Research Facility—during this year’s Nobel Day celebration.
SURF will also present the 2021 Communication and OutReach Experiences in Science (CORES) Award during the Nobel Day event.
“Deep Talks: Nobel Day” will be an online event, streamed on Friday, Dec. 10, from 6 to 7 p.m. MT. You can join this event through the Zoom webinar to answer polls and submit questions OR watch live on SURF’s Facebook page.
The Deep Talks lecture series is sponsored by Crow Peak Brewing Company, RCS Construction, Northern Hills Federal Credit Union and Chuck and Jolene Lichtenwalner.
