Parity violation

This might be why

Camera violation

The discovery of parity violation solved a problem with the decay of charged strange mesons in quantum field theory. Experimental verification came only after Lee suggested that researchers look for it. The effect had been noticed in 1928 but it was ignored because there was no theoretical support.
