Particles That Exhibit Negative Mass Created

Physicists Have Created Particles That Exhibit Negative Mass

If you push something, it will move in the direction of force applied. But if you push an object with negative mass, it will move against the direction of applied force. Creating a particle with negative mass seems practically impossible. But now physicists have developed a device that can create particles with negative mass.

Physicists Have Discovered A New Form Of Matter Called Excitonium

Physicists have proven the existence of new form of matter called excitonium, almost 50 years after it was first theorized. Upon studying non-doped crystals of the transition metal dichalcogenide titanium diselenide (1T-TiSe2), the researchers were able to observe the material and its precursor soft plasmon phase called the "smoking gun" that proves the existence of this rare, exotic material.

Lightning Creates Antimatter In The Atmosphere - And It’s Powerful Enough To Set Off Nuclear Reactions, Study Finds.

Lightning Creates Antimatter In The Atmosphere – And It’s Powerful Enough To Set Off Nuclear Reactions, Study Finds

Lightning is one of the most incredible natural phenomenons and there’s a lot we don’t know about it. Now, a study at Kyoto University, Japan has found that lightning strikes can set off photonuclear reactions in the atmosphere, and the gamma rays - emitted in lightning - react with the air to produce radioisotopes and even positrons (or, anti-electrons)  - the antimatter partner of electrons.

Stephen Hawking's doctoral thesis has been made publicly available online for the first time

Stephen Hawking’s PhD Thesis Was Recently Made Available Online – And Here’s What It Is About

Stephen Hawking's doctoral thesis has been made publicly available online for the first time. The 119-page document submitted by then 24-year old Hawking is titled "Properties of an Expanding Universe", and covers several topics that have echoed through his career such as the origins of the universe, gravitational waves, and singularities.

Quantum Computers Are A Tool Of Destruction, Not Creation, Says Leading Physicist

Quantum Computers Are A Tool Of Destruction, Not Creation, Says Leading Physicist

Quantum computers are a tool of destruction, not creation, according to Alexander Lvovsky, Quantum Optics group leader at the Russian Quantum Center. All the sensitive data sent over the internet is encrypted in order to protect the privacy of the parties involved, but quantum computers can make modern cryptography obsolete.
