Cosmological Constant Decay

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

Japanese theoreticians suggest more possible evidence for a new cosmic design feature. They point out that if the cosmic space energy density were to decay at a finely-tuned rate then molecules would form earlier in cosmic history and lead to an earlier formation of stars and galaxies. Such early formation dates could prove critical for setting up conditions conducive for human life.
