JP Tower Museum INTERMEDIATHEQUE


Notice on the Special Presentation
“Takaaki Kajita, Nobel Prize in Physics”

2016-02-22

   In March, the JP Tower Museum INTERMEDIATHEQUE (IMT) is opening the special presentation “Takaaki Kajita, Nobel Prize in Physics.”
   Professor Takaaki Kajita, director of the Institute for Cosmic Ray Research, the University of Tokyo, was awarded the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics for “the discovery of neutrino oscillations, which shows that neutrinos have mass.” Through observations in giant underground observatories, the Kamiokande and the Super-Kamiokande, he demonstrated for the first time that neutrinos, which were thought to be massless, actually have a mass. This major historic discovery will certainly contribute to the elucidation of the principles of matter and the evolution of the universe.
   In order to present Professor Kajita’s accomplishments to a wide audience, a special presentation of the Nobel Prize medal (official replica) as well as his scientific achievements will take place at the INTERMEDIATHEQUE, while a special conference (in Japanese) by Professor Kajita himself will be held at the JP Tower Hall & Conference.
