Title: The Oklo Natural Reactor and the Time Variability of the Fundamental Constants of Nature

Natural nuclear reactors? Changes in the speed of light? If either of these concepts seem implausible to you now they certainly won't once Dr. Steve Lamoreaux (LANL) delivers his SLAC Colloquium lectumore »re in the Panofsky Auditorium on November 7th at 4:15 pm entitled The Oklo Natural Reactor and the Time Variability of the Fundamental Constants of Nature. This lecture is a rare opportunity to learn not only about Oklo's incredible natural nuclear reactors but also to gain understanding about how the present-day study of these sites may alter our understanding of fundamental constants such as the speed of light. This event is a must-see for the curious!« less
