Professor Emeritus Arthur McDonald (Physics, Engineering Physics and Astronomy) was invited to Rideau Hall on Wednesday, Nov. 25, to meet Governor General David Johnston (Law'66, LLD'91), in recognition of his being awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics. During his trip to Ottawa, Dr. McDonald also met with Minister of Science Kirsty Duncan.

Dr. McDonald was awarded the Nobel Prize on Oct. 6, along with Takaaki Kajita of the University of Tokyo, “for their key contributions to the experiments which demonstrated that neutrinos change identities.”
