Antimatter created up to 500 times a day – right here on Earth, above our heads…

NASA has published a news article describing how its Fermi satellite / telescope was able to detect gamma ray bursts originating from thunder storms on Earth.

As a result if this observation, NASA believes that antimatter is produced in many heavy thunderstorms, around the planet, up to 500 times a day. This is neither science fiction nor the LHC gone wild – but good old mother nature, still good for the odd surprise every now and then ;-)

In einem kuerzlich veroeffentlichtem Artikel beschreibt heise telepolis NASA’s juengste Entdecking – Roentgenstrahlen, welche von schweren Gewittern abgegeben werden, erzeugen Antimaterie – auf der Erde- bis zu 500 mal am Tag! Das ist weder Science Fiction noch spielt der LHC verrueckt – hier ist die gute alte Mutter Natur am Werk, immer noch gut fuer Ueberraschungen. ;-)
