Are the Laws of Physics Changing?
Professor John D Barrow FRS, University of Cambridge

Abstract:
Astronomers have investigated whether the laws and constants of physics are the same today as they were billions of years ago. This lecture will look at what these high-precision observations have been telling us and see why many physicists believe that the laws of physics may be different elsewhere in the Universe.
