In research performed in Hall C, nuclear physicists have found that strange quarks do contribute to the structure of the proton. This result indicates that, just as previous experiments have hinted, strange quarks in the proton's quark-gluon sea contribute to a proton's properties. The result comes from work performed by the G-Zero collaboration, an international group of 108 physicists from 19 institutions, and was presented at a Jefferson Lab physics seminar on June 17.

I'm wondering if this gives us a clue about the physics of nuclear decay

I saw the words "ghostly" and "strange" and thought it was something interesting.  I am now disappointed.

Interesting fact: I actually have been to Jefferson Labs on a field trip in the sixth grade  (I was a magnet student.  We also went to NASA Langley the same year).  And I have a cousin that works for them.

I have no idea. This is an area of physics I don't follow closely enough to be much less confused than anyone else.
