studying antimatter for over 100 years, antimatter,
which is sometimes called mirror matter and can be a
solid, liquid, gas, or plasma. Antimatter is mirror image of matter and
like matter is composed of antimatter elements that have been incorporated
Periodic Table of Matter-Antimatter Elements.
element's nuclear, chemical and physical characteristics have been defined to
such an extent that scientists know almost as much about antimatter as matter.
Using the government’s estimate of $10 billion to find the Higgs bosons, the
intellectual value of the Periodic Table of Matter-Antimatter Elements is
estimated to be over $1 trillion.
Arthur Schuster, British physicist, coined the name "antimatter."
believed that there were entire antimatter solar systems that were
indistinguishable from our solar system. In
1905, Einstein unveiled his
special relativity and his famous equation, E=mc2. Erwin
Schrödinger and Werner Heisenberg apply the concept to the atoms and
quantum theory of physics. In 1928,
Paul Dirac combined quantum theory and special relativity, which
resulted in a solution containing an electron with positive energy, and a
positive electron (positron) with negative energy, which was confirmed by
Carl Anderson in his study of cosmic particles.
When antimatter or mirror matter enters our solar system,
mirror matter is called comets. The
quantity of mirror matter in our solar system is a million times less than
scientists had estimated. In 2002,
announced the discovery that comets are composed of antimatter to the
joint meeting of
American Physical Society and
Astronomical Society. The solar dust particles blast
antimatter off the comet to create the comet's plasma coma; and the solar wind
pulls the coma's plasma into the comet's tails. People are able to see comets from
the conversion of matter-antimatter into Mirror Energy, which produce
a spectrum of radiation that includes light, x-rays, and gamma rays.
sungrazers comets have collided with the Sun and produced enormous
explosions. According to the National Geographic
magazine, July 2004 issue, solar bursts were equivalent to
billions of megatons of TNT. When Earth passes through these enormous solar
storms, communication satellites have been damaged and electrical power on Earth
has been disrupted. Comets are not only colliding with the Sun, but
also have colliding with stars throughout
the Universe and are the source of gamma-ray bursts that scientists have been studying for 40 years.
