SUMO Paper Presented at Relativity Conference

John Lipa of Stanford University reports that Dr. J. Nissen presented an invited talk on the SUMO flight experiment program at the 2nd CPT and Lorentz Invariance Conference in Bloomington, Indiana in August. The conference focused on potential departures from the Standard Model of matter, some of which can be tested with precision clocks like SUMO. It is expected that SUMO will be able to make a number of unique contributions in this area, in addition to the more direct tests of relativity theory initially planned for the experiment. Calculations on SUMO's sensitivities are in progress at Indiana University.
