Nice Thought of the Week

Maybe we are rapidly approaching the DUH (Dogmatic Universe Horizon)

  1. “Everyone thought it must be due to experimental mistakes, because we’re all brought up to believe that decay rates are constant,” Sturrock said.

    On Dec 13, 2006, the sun itself provided a crucial clue, when a solar flare sent a stream of particles and radiation toward Earth. Purdue nuclear engineer Jere Jenkins, while measuring the decay rate of manganese-54, a short-lived isotope used in medical diagnostics, noticed that the rate dropped slightly during the flare, a decrease that started about a day and a half before the flare.

    If this apparent relationship between flares and decay rates proves true, it could lead to a method of predicting solar flares prior to their occurrence..

    The same as in an atom or a cell (nucleus and membrane(shell)? The gluons or flux tubes :)
