The project to detect neutrinos—mysterious, chargeless, massless sub-atomic particles—was called off in 1990 because the Indian government was unwilling to shell out Rs 50 crore. But others kept pegging away at it, and a Japanese researcher (Masatoshi Koshiba) eventually went on to share the 2002 Nobel with two others.

The Kolar gold fields experiment was initiated in the 1950s by the nuclear physicist, Homi J. Bhabha, to study cosmic rays. But it was in 1965 that neutrinos were detected by M.G.K. Menon and his associates V. S. Narasimham, B. V. Sreekantan and Ramanamurthy, and their Japanese collaborator S. Miyake.
