In Search of Inflation
In search of inflation, this week we hoped to see the Ballunar Festival in Houston, Texas. The festival brings colourful hot air balloons to the grounds of the Johnson Space Center. Unfortunately this fun event has been cancelled due to Hurricane Ike. Even at the Space Center, nature has not allowed inflation to occur.
If the speed of light slows according to GM=tc^3, it will still be slowing at a very tiny rate. An accurate enough laboratory experiment could measure change in c. It is impossible to prove experimentally that c is constant, because a more accurate experiment could prove that wrong. As scientific predictions go, “c change” is quite a good bet.
