    Scientific journal “Nature” publishes experimental proof

    Physicists at the TU Darmstadt have succeeded in observing an extremely rare radioactive decay for the first time ever. The unusual thing about it is that this so-called double gamma decay of an excited nucleus state, which represents a higher order process, takes place although the first order process is not prohibited by the conservation of energy and momentum laws or quantum-mechanical selection rules.
