SNOLAB is an underground laboratory that began as the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory and subsequently expanded not only physics experiments such as searches for dark matter and supernovae, but fruit fly genetics and the Presence or Absence of Ionizing Radiation. The laboratory is an ultra clean facility located at the 6800 level of Vale’s Creighton mine near Sudbury, Ontario.
