Congratulations to Takaaki Kajita in Japan and ACS author Arthur B. McDonald in Canada, who were awarded the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics for their discovery that neutrinos have mass. Takaaki Kajita discovered that neutrinos change identities on their way to the Super-Kamiokande detector in Japan. Arthur B. McDonald showed that neutrinos from the sun did not disappear on their way to Earth, but were captured with a different identity when they arrived at the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory.
