Nobel Prize in Physics

Date: 10/06/2015

Hi Crocker fans.

FYI: This morning I heard the news that this year's Nobel Prize in Physics was given to two neutrino experts. I was surprised and happy to hear that both Professor Kajita from Japan and Art McDonald from Canada are sharing the prize. I know Kajita-san pretty well from the Super-Kamiokande experiment that I have worked on since 1996 (and I'm still a member of part-time), and I'm proud to hear he won the award and really deserves it. This is a great day for the Super-Kamiokande experiment and the whole particle physics program, which CNL is contributing in a good way, too.

Here's are some news flashes:






























The latter one shows a picture of the inside of the "Super-Kamiokande" tank in Japan, where I spent many many good times between 1996 and 2006 installing cables and photo sensors.
