The Nobel Prize in Physics 2015 was awarded jointly to Takaaki Kajita and Arthur B. McDonald for the discovery of neutrino oscillations, which shows that neutrinos have mass. (the official press release and the summary)

In his interview to Shubashree Desikan of The Hindu, Prof McDonald mentions about the importance of the INO in taking the science forward. to read full interview

The Nobel Prize is a great news for scientists working on atmospheric neutrinos. The INO is proud to take this work forward, to enhance our understanding of neutrino mixing, and to realize the INO's potential for uncovering another facet of their nature: the mass ordering. It is a indeed a great opportunity for Indian science, to rise and meet the challenges. We expect support from everyone.
