breezy posted a topic in General DiscussionFirst evidence of elusive ‘ghost particles’ found inside particle accelerator November 3, 2015 First neutrino event candidates identified by the automated neutrino event reconstruction © MicroBooNE "Years of toil and experimentation have resulted in the first evidence ever of the long-theorized ‘ghost particles,’ or neutrinos. Scientists with the MicroBooNE physics experiment in Illinois used a 40-foot long particle collider for the job. Neutrinos are subatomic, nearly weightless particles that carry no electric charge and don’t interact with light – and thus, cannot be seen. They only interact by way of gravity or nuclear decay. This makes spotting them next to impossible. After light particles, which are called photons, neutrinos are the most numerous particles in the entire universe, and thought to be the foundation of matter. In early October, the Nobel Prize for Physics was awarded to a Canadian and a Japanese researcher, who worked independently to prove that neutrino oscillations exist, thus proving that neutrinos have mass after all. This is significant because their supposed lack of mass was what was thought to make them so hard to find. On October 15, after a 13-week shutdown, the Fermilab accelerator complex near Chicago shot a beam of protons, which are used to make neutrinos, which was analyzed by the MicroBooNE particle detector. On looking at the data, scientists finally gleaned the first ever detectable evidence of neutrino particles. “It’s nine years since we proposed, designed, built, assembled and commissioned this experiment… That kind of investment makes seeing first neutrinos incredible,” Bonnie Fleming, professor at Yale University and co-spokesperson for the experiment said. On November 2, MicroBooNE released the images of the first neutrino event candidates identified by the automated neutrino event reconstruction." snip https://www.rt.com/usa/320686-neutrinos-accelerator-collider-ghost/ another one on "Ghost Particles" 'Ghost particles' from space found in South Pole iceAugust 21, 2015 © IceCube Neutrino / YouTube https://www.rt.com/usa/313059-cosmic-neutrinos-antarctica-muons/
March 17th Press Conference on Major Discovery at Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics March 12, 2014 Press Release Source: Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics Dang, we missed this. "Researchers from the BICEP2 collaboration today announced the first direct evidence for this cosmic inflation. Their data also represent the first images of gravitational waves, or ripples in space-time. These waves have been described as the "first tremors of the Big Bang." Finally, the data confirm a deep connection between quantum mechanics and general relativity." The Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) will host a press conference at 12:00 noon EDT (16:00 UTC) on Monday, March 17th, to announce a major discovery. snip http://spaceref.com/news/viewpr.html?pid=42751 First Direct Evidence of Cosmic Inflation Cambridge, MA - "Almost 14 billion years ago, the universe we inhabit burst into existence in an extraordinary event that initiated the Big Bang. In the first fleeting fraction of a second, the universe expanded exponentially, stretching far beyond the view of our best telescopes. All this, of course, was just theory. Researchers from the BICEP2 collaboration today announced the first direct evidence for this cosmic inflation. Their data also represent the first images of gravitational waves, or ripples in space-time. These waves have been described as the "first tremors of the Big Bang." Finally, the data confirm a deep connection between quantum mechanics and general relativity. "Detecting this signal is one of the most important goals in cosmology today. A lot of work by a lot of people has led up to this point," said John Kovac (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics), leader of the BICEP2 collaboration. These groundbreaking results came from observations by the BICEP2 telescope of the cosmic microwave background -- a faint glow left over from the Big Bang. Tiny fluctuations in this afterglow provide clues to conditions in the early universe. For example, small differences in temperature across the sky show where parts of the universe were denser, eventually condensing into galaxies and galactic clusters. Since the cosmic microwave background is a form of light, it exhibits all the properties of light, including polarization. On Earth, sunlight is scattered by the atmosphere and becomes polarized, which is why polarized sunglasses help reduce glare. In space, the cosmic microwave background was scattered by atoms and electrons and became polarized too. "Our team hunted for a special type of polarization called 'B-modes,' which represents a twisting or 'curl' pattern in the polarized orientations of the ancient light," said co-leader Jamie Bock (Caltech/JPL). Gravitational waves squeeze space as they travel, and this squeezing produces a distinct pattern in the cosmic microwave background. Gravitational waves have a "handedness," much like light waves, and can have left- and right-handed polarizations. "The swirly B-mode pattern is a unique signature of gravitational waves because of their handedness. This is the first direct image of gravitational waves across the primordial sky," said co-leader Chao-Lin Kuo (Stanford/SLAC). The team examined spatial scales on the sky spanning about one to five degrees (two to ten times the width of the full Moon). To do this, they traveled to the South Pole to take advantage of its cold, dry, stable air. "The South Pole is the closest you can get to space and still be on the ground," said Kovac. "It's one of the driest and clearest locations on Earth, perfect for observing the faint microwaves from the Big Bang." They were surprised to detect a B-mode polarization signal considerably stronger than many cosmologists expected. The team analyzed their data for more than three years in an effort to rule out any errors. They also considered whether dust in our galaxy could produce the observed pattern, but the data suggest this is highly unlikely. "This has been like looking for a needle in a haystack, but instead we found a crowbar," said co-leader Clem Pryke (University of Minnesota)." snip snip snip Much more at link http://www.cfa.harvard.edu/news/2014-05 Tx Reddwolf Astrophysicists Release Major Discovery Confirming Cosmic Inflation By Dina Spector and Jennifer Welsh March 16, 2014 NASA Scientists have found the first direct evidence of cosmic inflation in gravitational waves from the Big Bang detected in the cosmic microwave background radiation of our universe. http://news.yahoo.com/astrophysicists-plan-announce-major-discovery-222124829.html?.tsrc=o2de and I will add this video from Dr.Paul LaViolette here also PROJECT CAMELOT: PAUL LAVIOLETTE G2CLOUD SUPERWAVE Think timelines and cosmosonicboom from<<<<our CHANI entity Think DUNE YeeHaw!!!
