In my mind this does not compute He allowed as how that was an interesting uestion and that he would ask somebody at Brookhaven National Laboratories A few weeks later he sent me the copy of Kitty Furguson's book Measuring the Universe with the idea that I would find the answer However if the answer was there I did not find it Any comment from the author?
