https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/09/100909004112.htm A team of astrophysicists based in Australia and England has uncovered evidence that the laws of physics are different in different parts of the universe. The report describes how one of the supposed fundamental constants of Nature appears not to be constant after all. Instead, this 'magic number' known as the fine-structure constant -- 'alpha' for short -- appears to vary throughout the universe. Actually it's not new. Its 8 years old. The article says the results are in the process of being peer reviewed. Just wondering is anything contrary or conclusive has been arrived at in the interim.
