THE OKLO REACTOR
No discussion of the time-variation of fundamental con-
stants would be complete without a mention of the Oklo
natural fission reactor.
Norman et al.  have reexamined data from several studies of nuclear decay rates and found no evidence for a correlation with Sun-Earth distance. However, our collaboration has recently re-analyzed Norman’s data, which Norman and his collaborators generously provided, and we have detected an annual periodicity with a small amplitude but the same phase as that found in the BNL and PTB datasets.
