Japan to Finance $5 Million Physics Lab in Bolivia

LA PAZ – Japan will finance the construction of a $5 million laboratory in Bolivia for the study of cosmic rays, Japanese Nobel laureate Takaaki Kajita said on Monday.

The winner of the 2015 Nobel Prize Winner in Physics traveled to La Paz to accept an honorary degree from Universidad Mayor de San Andres.

The new lab is to be built at an altitude of more than 4,750 meters (15,573 feet) on Mount Chacaltaya, a peak near La Paz where the Bolivian university already has a scientific facility.

Construction is expected to be completed in three years.

A score of Japanese and Bolivia researchers will work at the lab under the supervision of Masato Takita, an associate professor at Tokyo University’s Institute for Cosmic Ray Research.
