"..his equations indicated that atoms could indeed form a regularly repeating lattice in time, returning to their initial arrangement only after discrete (rather than continuous) intervals, thereby breaking time symmetry..."

I was wondering about the theory's validity and if you had heard of it?

P.S. I don't know if this is the right section.

Temporal symmetry of nature violation according to nobel prize winner

I'm not sure that there's any big movement to work on disproving the conjecture. The original info release was around Sept 2012. The article you linked had a quote from one of the Berkeley team that, " it may take “anywhere between three and infinity years” to complete, depending on funding or unforeseen technical difficulties..."

That was April - I couldn't find anything newer than you did!
