My friend Dennis Pettit (after whom Afsan’s apprentice Pettit in Foreigner is named) just drew this Planetary Society radio program to my attention; it first aired on June 12, 2006, and is now available for download and as an MP3 podcast.

The show includes an interview with Dr. Art McDonald of the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory. At about the eight-minute mark in the 29-minute program, this exchange occurs:

Host: … you could probably have rented your lab out as a science-fiction film site.

Dr. Art McDonald: Actually, in an interesting side topic, our lab has been the subject of a Hugo-winning science-fiction novel called Hominids by Robert Sawyer.
