Hefei born Nobel Prize winner honored

Yang Zhenning, a theoretical physicist born in Hefei, was honored with the lifetime achievement award at the 2019 “Qiushi Award” ceremony at Tsinghua University in Beijing on Sept 21.

Yang, together with Li Zhengdao, proposed a theory which showed that parity—the symmetry between physical phenomena occurring in right-handed and left-handed coordinate systems—is violated when certain elementary particles decay in 1956 and won the Nobel Prize for Physics for 1957.
