  The conservation of energy has even led to important new discoveries. In the s, physicists realized that energy (and momentum) was seemingly not conserved in the process of beta decay, in which an electron or positron is emitted from an unstable atomic nucleus. Though some physicists (looking at you, Niels Bohr) were tempted to throw out the principle of energy conservation .
