The shared 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics goes to... CARLETON UNIVERSITY, not University of Ottawa: 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics: Canadian Arthur B. McDonald shares win with Japan's Takaaki Kajita, CBC News, Posted: Oct 06, 2015 (LINK).
The recently announced Nobel Prize in physics is for a discovery (neutrino physics) done by physicists at Carleton University, and Queens University, and the National Research Counsel of Canada, excluding any physicists of the University of Ottawa.
This is the 2002 journal article of the discovery itself: "Direct Evidence for Neutrino Flavor Transformation from Neutral-Current Interactions in the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory", Q.R. Ahmad et al. (SNO Collaboration), Phys. Rev. Lett. 89, 011301 – Published 13 June 2002 (LINK).
Carleton University physicist authors on the article include: I. Blevis, F. Dalnoki-Veress, J. Farine, D. R. Grant, C. K. Hargrove, I. Levine, K. McFarlane, C. Mifflin, V. M. Novikov, M. O'Neill, M. Shatkay, and N. Starinsky.
National media had touted another researcher as the likely winner, who has done most of his career research at the National Research Council (in Ottawa) prior to moving to U of O: LINK.
But it was not to be.
Little Carleton University beat "Canada's university", as U of O likes to call itself (LINK).
