Antimatters are now far from being ‘elusive’

Had it not been for the modern greats — Galileo Newton and Einstein — rejection of antimatters’ verity, perhaps the scientists that came after them wouldn’t be that eager to launch their own disproval. After all, going against the theories of the greats, let alone producing a work that would disprove their claim, could propel one to fame.

This is what happened to technology innovator Thunder Energies Corporation (OTCQB: TNRG ) when it announced that it had invented a telescope that could detect antimatters. At first, it was hard for some to believe that a company known for its revolutionary earth-friendly fossil fuel and coal combustion technology , and nuclear instruments would also jump on the antimatter research bandwagon.

For months now, the world of astronomy was shaken by the idea that a telescope discovered by a mathematician has now successfully discredited a decades-old theory that these unique cosmic particles are non-existent. The Santilli Telescope , developed by Dr. Ruggero Maria Santilli, and is now among the most talked about inventions of contemporary science, is a product of a project that began in 1980s when Santilli was still at Harvard University.

Santilli actually capitalised on many existing theories — including those of Newton, Galileo and Einstein — so that he could find ways of disproving them. In 1993, he discovered new numbers that verified the existence of antimatters. Years later, he realised that he could actually capture the tangible aspects of the particles by inventing an optical instrument. 

“Unlike the Galilean telescope, our telescope uses concave lenses when focusing on images of antimatter-light. For detecting matter-light, it uses its convex lenses, which is, as we all know, also present in traditional telescopes, or the Galilean telescopes as we call it,” Santilli said in a statement.

Santilli’s claim is followed by a new discovery that amazed many believers of antimatters’ existence. According to a paper published by an international team at Italy’s Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Physical Review D for its August issue, the center of our planet contains the elusive particle. 

After several failed attempts to reach the center of the earth, geologists resorted to various techniques that would let them understand the physical — and even chemical — attributes of its inner section.

“So geologists use indirect techniques to make their investigations. The mantle (and crust) contains radioactive uranium and thorium. As they decay into lighter elements, they emit ghostly geoneutrinos that pass through rock as if it wasn’t there,” Belinda Smith of Cosmos Magazine wrote .

From here, they found the geoneutrinos, neutrinos’ antiparticle equivalent. “When a neutron inside a thorium or uranium atom decays, a proton, an electron and a geoneutrino are emitted. While protons and electrons are everywhere, the comparatively rare geoneutrino is the perfect marker for measuring remote radioactivity.”

In 2013 , the same group of scientists said that they could detect geoneutrinos from the center of the earth, but told the media that there were still a lot of work to do and discover. However, for many scientists, the recent discoveries on antimatters are significantly changing the entire landscape of science. For them, it could lead to more things—a new discovery, invention, or new theory, which is actually a good thing for science, and even for the entire human race.
