Title: A possible observational signature of the weight of vacuum energy [PDF]
Abstract: The problem of the cosmological constant is a well known puzzle in theoretical physics. Among other difficulties, there are basically no proposed observational tests which may provide indications on how to solve the problem. In this talk I discuss the possibility of "weighting the vacuum energy" from the observation of strange stars.
