Cronin and co-researcher Val Logsdon Fitch were awarded the 1980 Nobel Prize in Physics for a 1964 experiment that proved that certain subatomic reactions do not adhere to fundamental symmetry principles.
Specifically, they proved, by examining the decay of K-mesons, that a reaction run in reverse does not merely retrace the path of the original reaction, which showed that the reactions of subatomic particles are not indifferent to time.

 Cronin, James Watson   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Cronin was born in Chicago, Illinois, and educated at the Southern Methodist University and the University of Chicago.
He was at Princeton 1958-71, as professor from 1965, and became professor at the University of Chicago 1971.
The discovery for which Fitch and Cronin received the Nobel prize was first published in 1964, and at that time was regarded as a bombshell in the field of particle physics.

American particle physicist who was corecipient with James Watson Cronin of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1980 for an experiment conducted in 1964 that disproved the long-held theory that particle interaction should be indifferent to the direction of time.
Working with Leo James Rainwater, Fitch had been the first to observe radiation from muonic atoms; i.e., from species in which a muon is orbiting a nucleus rather than an electron.
He went on to study kaons and in 1964 began his collaboration with James Cronin, James Christenson, and René Turley which led to the discovery of violations of fundamental symmetry principles in the decay of neutral K-mesons.

It was on this day, in 1931 that the Nobel laureate in physics of 1980, James Watson Cronin, was born.
I make no claim to understanding much physics, and I'll even admit to being a rampant populist who, on matters such as this, can probably be deemed the proverbial fool who rushes, happily, into any metaphor that sounds convincing no matter how unbased in actual science.
Cronin received his Nobel prize for an experiment that showed (and here I quote the simplest online source I could find) "that reversing the direction of time would not precisely reverse the course of certain reactions of subatomic particles."

James Clerk Maxwell built upon this conception, in 1864, with an interlinked set of 20 equations that explained the interactions between electric and magnetic field.
The electroweak force, the unification of the weak nuclear force with electromagnetism, was proposed by Sheldon Lee Glashow, Abdus Salam and Steven Weinberg and confirmed in 1964 by James Watson Cronin and Val Fitch.
This led to the so-called Standard Model of particle physics in the 1970s, which successfully describes all the elementary particles observed to date.
