Old Sudbury mine the site of search for dark matter - CTV News

  1. Interesting article, but I don't think they're going to find much of anything here on earth. That for which they search does not live here.

    But I like the unsubtle, and perhaps unintentional, snark in the title...

  2. Lady Janus: I have a particular attachment to this story because:

    a) I am very interested in this area of science, and

    b) I was raised one mile from Creighton Mine, in the (then) INCO town of Lively! (and no, it was not 'lively' :)

  3. In fact, the name of the town was changed when regional government melded it with the surrounding townships and village... the new name was WALDEN... equally funny from the perspective of anyone who has read either Thoreau or Skinner.

    I was way young way back then.

    I seem to recall that town then called "Lively" was hit by a tornado.

    I had an older cousin that made a joke after the tornado past and he was laughing when he said the town was not lively now. I remember thinking what a sick joke. Like I said that was a long time ago.
