Welcome to SNOLAB

SNOLAB is an underground science laboratory specializing in neutrino and dark matter physics. Situated two km below the surface in the Vale Creighton Mine located near Sudbury Ontario Canada, SNOLAB is an expansion of the existing facilities constructed for the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) solar neutrino experiment.

Ontario North

Blessed with incredible natural beauty, Rainbow Country offers endless adventures and attractions - breathtaking cruises, white quartzite mountains and numerous historical sites. Wherever you go in Rainbow Country, you'll find a reason to return and here are some of them:

Drink in the beauty and history of Georgian Bay on a narrated cruise aboard the Island Queen departing from the Parry Sound Town Dock. Cruise the 30,000 Islands past rocky isles with summer cottages and jack pines bowed by the west wind. Explore mysterious shipwrecks sunk in the clearest water you'll ever see. Reel in a fish story and tell the tale over a tasty shore lunch.

Watch earthquakes form and gaze at the stars in Sudbury's internationally acclaimed Science North - a hands-on, high-tech, interactive centre for exploring the mysteries of science. Science North offers world-class science education and family fun! Focusing on the relationship between science and everyday life in a fun and exciting way, Science North offers something for all ages.

Did you know?

Before walking on the moon, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin prepared for lunar terrain by walking around the rocky ridges of Sudbury.

 

The Sudbury Basin
what is it?




Sudbury sits in a huge oval-shaped depression in the rocky Canadian Shield. This giant crater holds one of the Earth's richest known deposits of nickel and copper.

The Sudbury Basin is 100 km wide and 15 km deep. Most geologists agree that it was caused by a massive, 10 km-wide meteorite, traveling at 75 km per second, slamming into the Earth's crust about two billion years ago.

Sudbury started out as a camp for the workers who were building the Canadian Pacific Railway. It wasn't until 1856 that the nickel and copper ores were discovered in the area. The first mineral claims were staked in 1884.

Asteroid Impacts Render Riches, tells the story of how Sudbury was formed some 1.85 billion years ago, when the asteroid slammed into Earth with an impact said to have the equivalent energy of 10 billion Hiroshima bombs.
