Season’s Greetings from SNOLAB

December 23, 2022 — Facility Updates
The experiments featured on the 2022 holiday card are SNO+, PICO, SENSEI, HALO, and the MiniCLEAN IV, now an exhibit at Science North.  

On behalf of everyone at SNOLAB, 

I’d like to wish you all a happy and safe holiday season, and best wishes for the New Year. 

To the staff and user community, I wish to extend my sincere gratitude to everyone for their hard work and contribution to SNOLAB’s continued success as a leading-edge facility in underground science. In 2022 SNOLAB celebrated 10 years and reached experiment milestones including the building and commissioning of the SENSEI detector that is now taking science data and the completion of the SNO+ scintillator fill and PPO loading. The SNO+ detector is now running in phase two of three. The underground facility saw infrastructure upgrades including the commissioning of the new underground LN2 plant and upgrades to the ultra-pure water facility.  

As we look towards the upcoming year, we can look back on our accomplishments and be very proud of what we have achieved together.  

Wishing you all a holiday full of joy and a prosperous and healthy new year! 

Dr. Jodi Cooley  

Executive Director, SNOLAB
