The 2015 Nobel Laureate for Physics visits Ottawa: ‘I’m hearing very good things’.
On Tuesday, Art McDonald—the Nova Scotia-born astrophysicist—visited Parliament Hill to be recognized for his Nobel Prize win for his discoveries about neutrinos stemming from his underground lab in Sudbury. “For us to be recognized in this way, it really makes us very pleased to have been able to accomplish this in Canada,” he said. “We hope that it’s an inspiration for younger scientists, younger people who’d like to be scientists in Canada to understand that you can do it here.”
