Scientists design a collider that turns light into matter

Ever since the 1960s, when the food synthesiser made its appearance in <i>Star Trek</i>, the idea of a machine that could seemingly make something from nothing has been the kind of tech we dream about. But the actual technology may not be as implausible as previously thought.<p>In 1934, Gregory Breit and John …

APOD: Jupiter's Great Red Spot from Voyager 1 (2014 May 18) Image Credit: NASA, JPL; Digital processing: Björn Jónsson (IAAA) http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140518.html Explanation: What will become of Jupiter's Great Red Spot? Recorded as shrinking since the 1930s, the rate of the Great Red Spot's size appears to have accelerated just in the past few years. A hurricane larger than Earth, the Great Red Spot has been raging at least as long as telescopes could see it. Like most astronomical phenomena, the Great Red Spot was neither predicted nor immediately understood after its discovery. Although small eddies that feed into the storm system seem to play a role, a more full understanding of the gigantic storm cloud remains a topic of continued research, and may result in a better understanding of weather here on Earth. The above image is a digital enhancement of an image of Jupiter taken in 1979 by the Voyager 1 spacecraft as it zoomed by the Solar System's largest planet. NASA's Juno spacecraft is currently heading toward Jupiter and will arrive in 2016. http://www.nasa.gov http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/ http://www.mmedia.is/bjj/ http://iaaa.org/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=140518 #APOD

Matter will be created from light within a year, claim scientists

Researchers have worked out how to make matter from pure light and are drawing up plans to demonstrate the feat within the next 12 months.<p>The theory underpinning the idea was first described 80 years ago by two physicists who later worked on the first atomic bomb. At the time they considered the …
