Caption: Val Logsdon Fitch (b.1923), American physicist. Fitch worked on the Manhattan Project, which developed the atom bomb during World War II. Subsequently he worked on the decay of neutral kaons with respect to the conservation of charge conjugation (C) and parity (P). One type of kaon decays into two pions, but Fitch's work also showed this to be true for another kind, violating CP conservation. This proved that the decay was not symmetrical with respect to time. Fitch and his colleague James Cronin shared the 1980 Nobel Prize in Physics for this work.
