Natural nuclear reactors? Changes in the speed of light? If either of these concepts seem implausible to you now, they certainly won’t once Steve Lamoreaux (LANL) delivers his SLAC Colloquium lecture entitled, The Oklo Natural Reactor and the Time Variability of the Fundamental Constants of Nature.

This lecture is a rare opportunity to hear about Oklo’s incredible natural nuclear reactors. In addition, you can learn about how the present day study of these sites may alter our understanding of fundamental constants such as the speed of light.

Join us in Panofsky Auditorium on Monday, November 7, at 4:15 p.m. This is simply a must for the curious!
