First Scientific Results from the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory to be
Announced on Monday 18 June 2001

Today the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory, an international laboratory
built to provide unique insights into the properties of neutrinos and
their emission from the core of the Sun, will publicly discuss the
observatory's first published results.

The SNO detector consists of 1,000 tons of ultrapure heavy water enclosed
in a 12 meter diameter acrylic plastic vessel, which in turn is surrounded
by ultrapure ordinary water in a giant 22 meter diameter by 34 meter high
cavity. The entire system is buried 2 kilometers under Earth's surface.
