Originating Calendar
Physics - Colloquium

By going underground and creating ultra-clean conditions it is possible to address some very fundamental questions about our Universe: How does the Sun burn? What are the dark matter particles making up 26% of our Universe? What are the properties of neutrinos, elusive particles that are one of the fundamental building blocks of nature? How do these particles influence how our Universe evolves? Experiments to address these questions will be described that are taking place at underground labs internationally.
