Barry Setterfield of Australia [physicist] did a study of 160 different determinations of the speed of light from the past 300 yrs. He found that the velocity has slowed considerably over time, until 1980, when they started to use atomic [Cesium] clocks, at which time it showed no apparent change. The absence of decay with the atomic clocks is predictable as the radiation of the cesium isotope is a function of electromagnetic radiation; in his terms, the decay of the velocity of c is in "lock-sync" with all 16 atomic functions [Planck's constant etc.]. This hasn't made into the journals yet. It will be interesting to see if they accept it. I would imagine there would be some reluctance on the part of the materialist science establishment to accept a theory that would send them back to the proverbial drawing board with the current cosmological constructs, not to mention, radiometric dating....
