Caption: Dr. V.S. Narasimham, leader of the Proton Decay Experiment at Kolar, India. Dr. Narasimham is a researcher with the Tata Institute of Bombay and has been involved with the proton decay project since 1978. The Kolar experiment involves a 150- tonne cube of iron tubes, each of which has been converted to form a geiger detector, based in a gold mine 6,000 feet underground. The project has been in place with a variety of detectors since 1964, to date no definite proton decay events have been observed. Proton decay is essential to most Grand Unified Theories of fundamental forces, and is the subject of four other experiments throughout the world.
