Why Astroparticle Physics

Astroparticle physics is a relatively new field of science, bringing together lab experiments, astronomical observations, theoretical physics, and computational physics. By using approaches from these different areas, astroparticle physicists can combine knowledge in new ways and gain a different perspective on the mysteries of our universe. Canada has already established itself as a global leader in astroparticle physics, and our Canadian Astroparticle Physics Community brings together research groups in different disciplines to create a collaborative environment for future growth and leadership.
