Space experts have proudly announced that cosmic neutronis has been discovered by the Antarctica Observatory. The current study confirms the previous observations that scientists have made in 2013 indicating the presence of these tiny, electronically charged elements in space.
Based on the generally acknowledged definition, cosmic neutronis represent subatomic particles existing in space that are neutrally charged. These particles are said to originate outside our solar system; therefore, they may be regarded as truly genuine cosmic elements.
The first time scientists have got a glimpse of cosmic neutronis was in May 2013 when the IceCube Neutrino Observatory from Antarctica detected these cosmic elements outside our atmosphere. It took scientists two additional years of researchers until they could finally confirm the validity of their initial discovery.
According to scientists at the Antarctica Observatory the finding has a huge significance for space exploration because it gives experts the possibility to understand more about the mechanisms behind black holes, and exploding supernovas. Cosmic neutronis particles exist in these natural space accelerators and they are usually very hard to detect due to the space matter that surrounds them.
Even so, our Earth is crossed every year by billions of neutronis, which remain most of the times undetected. Scientists find it hard to detect them also because the particles have zero mass even though they produce large amounts of energy.
Experts at the Antarctica Observatory have told the press that the discovery was made possible due to the thousand optical sensors that their space telescope has been provided with. These sensors are so sensitive that they can capture even the tiniest movements of these ghostly particles, they have further stated.
IceCube has recorded the presence of 35,000 neutronis in space between 2010 and 2012. However, only 20 of these recordings have been confirmed, after scientists have measured their electric charge.
Vladimir Papitashvili from the National Science Foundation has welcomed the discovery that scientists have made. He takes great confidence that the new evidence on neutronis’ existence will shed additional light on dark matter.
