Canadian Light Source
44 Innovation Boulevard
The Canadian Light Source is one of Canada’s top science projects and it happens to be in Saskatoon. It is also currently broken and won’t be fixed for a while. That makes it a great time to go for a tour.
A friend who works there has offered to give us an extended tour. She expects the tour to take about 90 minutes.
This is after normal business hours so there are a couple of rules.
- RSVP on the meetup site. We need to know how many people are attending.
- Don’t be late. This is after hours and if you show up late you probably will not get into the building.
The CLS is on the North edge of the U of S campus. The University and Innovation Place have been rerouting the roads around the CLS. The old address was 101 Perimeter Rd. The new address is 44 Innovation Blvd. Here is link to a Google Map. The map has a picture of the new roads, but Google doesn’t seem to know about them yet.
There is also a bus stop right in front of the CLS.
The CLS has multiple entrances. The main entrance is on the north side, and there is a parking lot on that side as well.
What about Beer?
After the tour we will probably try going to a Bar. Louis’ is probably the most convenient.
