Abstract of talk by Prof. McDonald:

The Sudbury Neutrino Observatory: A success story for science and engineering

The Sudbury Neutrino Observatory project involved the design, engineering and construction of a particle detector the size of a ten storey building 2 km underground under ultra-clean conditions with $300 million of heavy water as the central detection medium. With this detector it was possible observe one neutrino per hour with essentially no radioactive background in the region of interest and use this data to show conclusively that electron neutrinos produced in the core of the sun change to other neutrino flavours before reaching the earth. This requires that neutrinos have a non-zero mass, which is new physics beyond the Standard Model of Elementary Particles. The science and engineering challenges of the Nobel Prize winning project will be discussed.
