I remember reading a few years back in Sci Am that some constant appeared to have changed with time.
I wish I had paid more attention to the article.
I cant remeber what the constant was but it one of those numbers you need you plug into another set of equations to get solution.
But this constant that had been a measured value for almost 75 years, appeared to have been changing with time.
Its new value was a significantly different than when measured the first time.
I have a theory, it just came to me.
The biggest prize in modern physics is A Grand Unification Theory.
A theory that ties all the forces of nature up into a nice tidy inter related package.
How do you tie gravity to electromagnetism and the nuclear forces?
The relationship between magnatism and electricity is clear.
Maybe what they have found illustrates a relationship between one or more of the other forces to the weak nuclear force.
Maybe this apperant change in the atomic decay rate(the weak nuclear force), with a change in distance is caused by the interaction of either the
force of gravity, which varirs with distance, or the interaction of the the bodies magnetic fields, that are causing the shift.
Doe the change of decay rate hold true for a sample out side of a gravity well or infulencing magnetic fields.
Would this change of decay hold true for a sample, orbiting the sun at the varying distance but free of the gravitational and magnetic inflluences of
