Tell Me Why

Tell Me Why.

 

 

From when I was a lad.

 

 

Reading the runes, it looks like we may soon discover the answer to Why ?

‘We’re about to find out Why’.

X2 = 4. This is way out of my pay league !

 

 

From CERN :

`In 1928, British physicist Paul Dirac wrote down an equation that combined quantum theory and special relativity to describe the behaviour of an electron moving at a relativistic speed. The equation – which won Dirac the Nobel Prize in 1933 – posed a problem: just as the equation x2 = 4 can have two possible solutions (x = 2 or x = −2), so Dirac’s equation could have two solutions, one for an electron with positive energy, and one for an electron with negative energy. But classical physics (and common sense) dictated that the energy of a particle must always be a positive number.

Dirac interpreted the equation to mean that for every particle there exists a corresponding antiparticle, exactly matching the particle but with opposite charge. For example, for the electron there should be an “antielectron”, or “positron”, identical in every way but with a positive electric charge. The insight opened the possibility of entire galaxies and universes made of antimatter.’

May you live in interesting times.

Just a few thoughts.

‘Everything that can happen does happen.’ Or does it ?

 

 

 

Is it just me ?

 

 

Welcome to the Mirror Verse.

 

 

And Anti Bodies. Achoo.

 

 

Thanks to MJ. Anti (S) Particle Wood.

 

 

And please understand I know very little about the science of matter and anti matter.

From Infinity Explorers :

‘If we describe the antiparticle, then in simple language it is a mirror image of a particle with the same mass and electric charge. Why are scientists so interested in particles that are just kind of similar and partly different from their originals?

It turned out that the collision of a particle and an antiparticle leads to annihilation – their destruction, and the release of the corresponding energy in the form of other high-energy particles, that is, a small explosion. Motivates to the study of antiparticles and the fact that a substance consisting of antiparticles (antimatter) is not independently formed in nature, according to observations of scientists.’
