Apparently, the Sorbonne University has confirmed the detection of antimatter galaxies via a Santilli telescope with concave lenses.
Antimatter is material composed of antiparticles that have the same mass as regular particles but have an opposite charge. If an antimatter particle and a matter particle meet, they are both destroyed.
So the question has been, how do you detect antimatter? It turns out that antiparticles are created everywhere in the universe where high-energy particle collisions take place. So they can be reproduced in colliders. And it seems that there is a giant cloud of antimatter surrounding the center of our own galaxy.
In 2009, NASA sent the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) cosmic ray detector to the ISS to look for antimatter galaxies (among other things). The experiments are still continuing and the search continues.
So the new concave telescope design that was apparently used to find these antimatter galaxies uses new principles and math that I am not ashamed to say I don’t understand. However, having said that I would like confirmation from other scientists that do understand the math before I sign on to this as a fact. If it holds, then I need to buy another telescope to help hunt for antimatter!
This wouldn’t be too far afield for me as some of my friend have said that I can be very contrarian at times
