Celebration for Breakthrough Prize
2016 Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics Goes to Five Neutrino Experiments
We had a KamLAND group gathering with collaborators and Atsuto-san to celebrate the prize, and we shared many stories about the time of establishment of KamLAND experiments, Astute-san’s pleasant personality, and thanking the efforts to have a good environment to work with multinational researchers and technical staff.
The Breakthrough Prizes, which honor advances in Fundamental Physics,
Life Sciences, and Mathematics, were founded in 2012 by technology VIPs.
2016 Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics went to Five Neutrino
Experiments including KamLAND.
The $3 million prizes are the richest in their fields, often awarded to more
than one activity in each category and acknowledging the contributions of
their team members.
