The Wu Experiment

The Wu experiment was a nuclear physics experiment conducted in 1956 by the Chinese American physicist Chien-Shiung Wu. The experiment's purpose was to establish whether or not conservation of parity, which was previously established in the electromagnetic and strong interactions, also applied to weak interactions. If P-conservation were true, a mirrored version of the world would behave as the mirror image of the current world.
