Lancaster neutrino physicists have been involved in the work of both of this year's Nobel Prize for Physics laureates, but particularly with that of Professor Arthur McDonald on both the SNO experiment for which the prize was awarded, and the successive, current SNO+ experiment. In 2001, SNO demonstrated conclusively that neutrinos change type as they traverse the distance between the Sun and the Earth, solving a 40-year puzzle.

Astronomers using ESO’s Very Large Telescope have discovered by far the brightest galaxy yet found in the early Universe and found strong evidence that examples of the first generation of stars lurk within it. These massive, brilliant, and previously purely theoretical objects were the creators of the first heavy elements in history — the elements necessary to forge the stars around us today, the planets that orbit them, and life as we know it. The newly found galaxy, labelled CR7, is...
