Presentation begins at 6:00 pm: Ghost Particle (2021) is a science documentary that follows international efforts to understand the universe by studying its smallest parts with some of the world’s largest experiments. Neutrinos are invisible, essentially massless particles that pass-through matter like ghosts. They act in peculiar quantum ways and their identity-changing behaviour may hold the key to unlocking big questions about the origin of matter in the universe. This film will be followed by a Q&A with international scientists including our own Professor Kendall Mahn.
