Researchers Find That Matter Can Be Conjured from a Vacuum
ScienceBlog.com reports that University of Michigan researchers have devised a set of equations that suggest a high-energy laser pulse can rip apart the nothingness of a vacuum, turning it into its constituent particles and antiparticles and setting off a chain reaction that actually generates additional matter-antimatter pairs.
The first step in understanding their line of thinking is to change the way you look at a vacuum; rather than being an empty void, they say, a vacuum is a balanced combination of matter and antimatter, or particles and antiparticles. These particles have tremendous density but we cannot observe them, for their observable characteristics cancel each other out.
The researchers describe this work as a theoretical breakthrough, and a “qualitative jump in theory.”
I would concur and add that human society is not far away from discovering the powers of zero point energy. Aweshum.
Scientists Create Supernova
Apparently, Scientists and Physicists collaborating from the University of Toronto and Rutgers University claimed to have recreated the supernova in a jar! While studying the effects of mixing two reactive chemicals, the physicists discovered a phenomena which mimics the explosion of a supernova but in a miniature version.
The reaction creates a self-sustaining vortex ring without any additional catalysts.
