A discussion among scientists
Parity and Particles
One of the most cherished laws of physics is known as ' the conservation of i parity.' It embodies the concept that
Nature shows no preference for being either right-handed or left-handed. Early this year experiments showed that the law of conservation of parity (right/left r symmetry) is not true in all cases. This result, as crucial in its way as the result of the Michelson-Morley experiments last century, means that ideas of the structure of space and the behaviour of elementary particles will need revision.
