The 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics has just been handed out to deserving individuals. On 11:45 a.m. Sweden time, the award was presented to Takaaki Kajita and Arthur B. McDonald for their contributions and research on the mass of neutrino oscillations.
Arthur B. McDonald is a physicist from Canada who is also the director of the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory Institute. He specializes in astrophyics. He was also given the Royal Society of Canada’s Henry Marshall Tory Medal for his work on bringing “great honour and intellectual wealth to Canada.”
Takaaki Kajita, on the other hand, works at the Institute for Cosmic Ray Research in the University of Tokyo. In 2014, a Japanese physicist also won the Nobel Prize for the same category – Isamu Akasaki.
