Two telescopes that can change how we understand the universe and its infancy

“We have long asked if whether we are alone in the universe. But clearly we are not alone on earth. The evolution of intelligence, of empathy, and complex societies, is surely more likely than we have hitherto considered,” longtime High Plains Reader contributor Ed Raymond wrote on his column.

Perhaps this statement is the very same one that goes inside the head of scientists and thinkers who want to prove that the universe is more than the Solar System and its matter particles. Among whom are the people behind the two revolutionary telescopes that aim to seek beyond what is known about the universe.

Thunder Energies Corporation’s (OTCQB: TNRG) unveiling of its new product has been shaking the world of astronomy since its launched this year. The company claims that its Santilli Telescope can detect antimatter particles that have long been considered difficult to prove, if not totally nonexistent at all, by many modern greats in science in the past. It turns out that it can be done, and that Thunder Energies’ telescope is indeed the first optical instrument that has proven anti matter’s existence.

The Santilli Telescope enjoyed sizeable attention among astrophysicists and amateur space explorers for its uniqueness. For the first time in history, antimatters’ verity is proven beyond mathematical equation — i.e. Paul Dirac’s eponymous equation — and that it can actually let people see these elusive particles with their naked eye.

“We are glad to announce the search for antimatter galaxies alongside with the search for extraterrestrial life, dark matter and dark energy because our knowledge of the universe is insignificant compared to what remains yet to be discovered,” Dr. Ruggero Maria Santilli, the telescope’s inventor and Thunder Energies’ chief scientist, said in a statement.

The telescope uses concave lenses for detecting antimatter light and can also function as a regular Galilean telescope by detecting matter-light through its convex lenses. It is the only technology on the market that has successfully discredited the theory on antimatters’ nonexistence and unexplained characteristics. The discovery of antimatter images can shed some light on why antimatter particles disappeared during the Big Bang when it collapsed with matter particles. Delving deeper into this mystery can alter early theories on the universe’s beginnings.

Space exploration leader NASA also has a telescope that can help solve this quandary.

The James Webb Space Telescope, is now awaiting completion at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. This ambitious telescope, known to be the successor to the successful Hubble Space Telescope, will be available for space exploration by 2018. Its first mission is to orbit the Sun and the Earth at a distance of 940,000 miles away from the latter.

Like the Santilli, the tennis court-big James Webb is also capable of detecting faint, obscure images that can give light to the universe’s infancy years. Webb will focus on the light that has been traveling in the universe billions of years since the Big Bang.

“With Webb looking back in time to a few hundred million years after the explosion, scientists will analyze light for clues concerning the earliest formation of stars, planets, galaxies and us,” wrote PennLive and Washington Post columnist George Will.

However, he suggested that NASA had clarified that Webb was not designed to determine the exact numbers of galaxies in space or to discover a new phenomenon that would reveal the universe’s real origin. “Webb [conversely] will express our species’ dignity as curious creatures,” Will said. In other words, what Webb can only do is gather information from these obscure lights that might help us understand clearly what happened during the Big Bang.
