Professor Emeritus and Nobel Laureate Art McDonald receives the Order of Nova Scotia 

Dr. Art McDonald has been awarded yet another honour. On Wednesday, Oct 12th,  he was one of five recipients of the Order of Nova Scotia. 

In 2015, Dr. McDonald  was the co-recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physics for his pioneering work in discovering that neutrinos oscillate, demonstrating that neutrinos from the sun were not disappearing on their way to earth and were captured with a different identity when arriving at SNO. Neutrinos having mass has helped solve a puzzle that physicists had wrestled with for decades.
