  • THE possibility that fundamental nuclear constants may vary slowly while the Universe expands has been discussed by several authors1–5. I try here to show that the well known resonance properties of the ‘heavy nucleus plus slow neutron’ system make it a sensitive ‘receiver’, sharply tuned to the current values of nuclear constants.
