Takaaki Kajita and Arthur McDonald Win Nobel Prize for Physics

Takaaki Kajita and Arthur McDonald have won the Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of neutrino oscillations, showing that neutrinos have mass.

Takaaki Kajita established that neutrinos from the atmosphere switch between two identities on their way to the Super-Kamiokande detector in Japan.

Arthur McDonald revealed that the neutrinos from the Sun do not disappear on their way to the Earth. Instead they were captured with a different identity when arriving to the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory.

Both experiments discovered that the neutrinos had changed identities – a great discovery in Particle Physics.
