In SFN #266 I reported about an experiment being planned at Oak Ridge National Laboratory that attempts to test an idea about parallel universes to help explain the difference in decay rates of neutrons from rest vs. those created in a beam from fission.

Today's guest is Joshua Barrow, a PhD candidate at the University of Tennessee and a DOE SCGSR Program Fellow at Fermilab. He is a colleague of Dr. Leah Broussard, the lead scientist on the experiment to be conducted this summer and familiar with the experiment itself. Join us as he explains the problem, the experiment and clarifies some misconceptions.
