Antimatter particles have been detected and we're not talking about it

South pole telescope
The 10-m (32.8 ft) South Pole Telescope and the BICEP (Background Imaging of Cosmic Extragalactic Polarization) Telescope at Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station is seen against the night sky with the Milky Way in this National Science Foundation picture taken in August 2008. Astronomers announced on March 17, 2014 that they had discovered what many consider the holy grail of their field: ripples in the fabric of space-time that are echoes of the massive expansion of the universe that took place just after the Big Bang. The gravitational waves were detected by the BICEP telescope. Reuters

Thunder Energies Corporation ( OTCQB: TNRG ) lead scientist Dr Ruggero Maria Santilli said that his successful discovery of the eponymous optical instrument capable of detecting antimatter images can forever change how the universe is seen by scientists and other professionals from the academe world. However, he is also convinced that not everyone is interested in the developments in the astrophysics segment, and that the search for antimatters’ actuality has not yet reached the consciousness of the general public.

“This is one of the main reasons why I decided to introduce the Santilli Telescope not only to professional astronomers and physicists but also to amateur ones, the backyard astronomers and aspiring astronomers, for example,” said Dr. Santilli in an email interview.

In a report , the company said that the first telescope that can detect antimatter-light images is now available in the global market through distribution. The company also expressed delight in revealing that it would look for partnerships with distribution firms to reach the amateur astronomy market outside the United States.

“ I am particularly glad that Thunder Energies Corporation is making available to professional as well as amateur astronomers all over the world our new telescopes for the first known systematic search of antimatter galaxies following a number of scientific publications,” Santilli said.

But the company wants the telescope to be noticed by other groups such as the military, as it believes that it could help the country in protecting itself should there be neutron-related tragedies happen in the future.

“I hope that these studies will attract the participation also of our Military because, in the event our Country is hit by an antimatter asteroid the size of a football, all our civilian, industrial and military communications will be disrupted for days due to the extreme radiations caused by the annihilation of antimatter asteroids in our atmosphere,” he said in a statement . “Thus, we need to get people talking about antimatters more, which I think the inception of our telescope is doing right now.”

The Santilli Telescope

The idea of building a telescope that can disprove early theories on these negative particles’ nonexistence or difficulty to prove came to Santilli’s mind when he was still at the University of Torino, in Italy in the 1960s.

Later, he started developing mathematical equations on the classical representation of neutral or charged antimatter bodies. This is now popularly known as the Santilli isodual mathematics, the isodual conjugate of 20th century physical theories, which includes the reformulation of special and general relativities for antimatter, and verification of their compatibility with all available experimental data .

“ In this way, after a fifty year-long scientific journey, the new telescope with concave lenses allowed me to publish in 2014 a paper in a refereed journal announcing the detection, for the first time in scientific history, of antimatter galaxies, antimatter cosmic rays, and antimatter asteroids, which detection was subsequently confirmed by two different teams of scientists,” he said.

Currently, Santilli and his company is among the few private entities concerned and focused on the detection of these elusive matters’ still-undiscovered capacities.
