Nov 10, 2015: ARTHUR MCDONALD GIVES A TALK ABOUT SNO AT THE BERKELEY LAB

ArtLBL
Arthur B. McDonald has given today an overview about the SNO experiment, telling how after years of developement since the first original idea in 1984, the succesful experiment led to the discovery of the solar neutrino oscillation, solving the outstanding solar neutrino puzzle. Arthur described the detector construction, explained neutrino oscillations, covered most of the SNO measurements and thanks the SNO group at UC Berkeley and Berkeley LAB for their contribution.

Nov 9, 2015: SNO AWARDED WITH THE BREAKTHROUGH PRIZE OF PHYSICS

btl2016
Along with Daya Bay, K2K, T2K, KamLand and SuperKamiokande, the SNO experiment gets the breakthrough prize that is explicitely given to each of the more than 1300 collaborators of the 6 experiments. These prizes, hosted by Silicon Valley enterpreneurs like Mark Zuckerberg, try to put science and scientifics at the level of Hollywood actors by substancial prizes ($3M) and Oscar-like ceremonies.

Arthur B. McDonald, director of SNOLAB and SNO+ collaborator, awarded with the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of neutrino oscillation at the SNO detector, showing neutrinos are massive particles. The prize is shared with Takaaki Kajita for the demonstration of the neutrino oscillations in the atmospheric sector with the SuperKamiokande experiment.
