E Coli carrying strands of DNA with heavy nitrogen/heavy nitrogen was found in both new strand and parent strand proving replication was semiconservative
Modified Michelson-Morley procedure to test special relativity/Showed c to be independent of velocity of apparatus/Verified Time Dilation and Length Contraction
Used bacteroiphages with radioactive Phosphorus to label DNA and radioactive Sulfur to label proteins/Bacteriophages infected cells and only phosphorus appeared/DNA carried genes
Heavy liquid bubble chamber detector at CERN from 1970-79/discovered neutral currents/indicated existence of Z boson & 1st verified electroweak theory
Name of Japanese business conglomerate whose lab performed the double slit experiment with beam of electrons/showed wave nature of electrons
Demonstrated that penicillin kills bacteria on moldy bread
Disproved the theory of luminiferous aether as a carrier of light
Performed double slit experiment with buckyballs/pattern showed diffraction/supports wave-particle duality of all matter

Electrostatics experiment that demonstrated effect of electrostatic induction on a conducting container/Know as Ice Pail experiment/Showed principles of electromagnetic shielding
Experiment that stimulated the conditions of early earth/Used CH4, NH3, H2, and H2O/ Produced over 20 amino acids
