The universe, as the Big Bang Theory explains it, once consisted of a balanced amount of matter and antimatter particles, or molecules comprising atoms made of antiprotons, antineutrons and positrons. But because of strange, hitherto unexplained occurrences, the balance was disrupted, leaving the cosmos only with matter particles.

In the early 1930s, Paul Dirac ’s discovery of the antimatter shattered the early theories that Einstein, Newton and Galileo founded. It was, of course, difficult to believe a new theory that could only be proven by a mathematical equation — now called the Dirac Equation . But this has encouraged many astrophysicists and mathematicians to delve deeper into its unexplored aspects, among which is its tangibility.

Now, the search for the elusive antimatter particles continues and remains one of the favorite topics in debates among astrophysicists, mathematicians, scientists and even amateur astronomers.

Fast forward to 2015, Thunder Energies Corporation (OTCQB: TNRG ) , a Florida-based company led by mathematician Dr Ruggero Maria Santilli, shook the world when he announced that his company has finally invented an optical machine for space explorations that could detect these particles.

“The Santilli Telescope will pull back the curtain of the heavens, thus enabling amateur astronomers to photograph for the first time visual evidences of antimatter galaxies. Discovery has always been a motivating factor in amateur astronomy, and with the Santilli Telescope, discovery can happen,” Santilli said.

Revered professor Svetlin Georgiev of the Sorbonne University in Paris once said that Santilli’s discovery is groundbreaking . “The mathematical relevance of Prof. Santilli's detection of antimatter galaxies is that it confirms the validity of the new isodual mathematics based on a new form of the differential calculus discovered by Newton as a condition to formulate his celebrated equation, and known as Santilli isodual differential calculus,” Georgiev said.

In 2008 , Tanmay  Vachaspati  of Arizona State University finally started to work on his 2001 paper on 'left-handed' magnetic field that pervades the universe by launching an observatory that could detect gamma rays from very distant sources, such as the supermassive black holes found in many large galaxies. This allowed them to detect and measure the properties of magnetic field, leading them to the detection of the excess of “left-handedness” of screw-like magnetic fields in the universe.

The screw-like field is a big step towards solving the mystery of antimatters’ absence in the universe. “This discovery has wide ramifications, as a cosmological magnetic field could play an important role in the formation of the first stars and could seed the stronger field seen in galaxies and clusters of galaxies in the present day,” the Daily Galaxy explained .

So if it is already solved or not, only time can tell. No one can say if we’re close to achieving such a lofty goal. But the good thing is that there are advancements, and that we humans are going forward and improving, and not the other way around.
