Anecdote involving Feynman and Wu at the 1958 APS meeting
Or does the author mean 1957?


In January 1958 I attended the meeting of the American Physical Society in New York where Wu presented the results of her experiment on parity violation in beta decay of cobalt-60. In a 20 minute talk she described the experiment and announced that the result was that beta-decay indeed violated parity conservation and the combination of amplitudes was S+T, the sum of the scalar and tensor currents.
