Hypernuclei Discovered --The Core of Strange Matter that May Exist in Distant Reaches of the Universe

Physicists in Italy have discovered the first evidence of a rare nucleus that doesn’t exist in nature and lives for just 10-10 seconds before decaying. It’s a type of hypernucleus that, like all nuclei, contains an assortment of neutrons and protons. Unlike ordinary nuclei, hypernuclei also contain at least one hyperon, a particle that consists of three quarks, including at least one strange quark. Hypernuclei are thought to form the core of strange matter that may exist in distant parts of the universe, and could also allow physicists to probe the inside of the nucleus.

The hypernucleus investigated here, reports Physorg.com, is called "hydrogen six Lambda" (6ΛH), was first predicted to exist in 1963. In a study published in a recent issue of Physical Review Letters, physicists working in the FINUDA experiment at the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare - Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati (INFN-LNF) in Frascati, Italy, reported finding the first evidence for the particle. The FINUDA collaboration’s analysis of millions of events has turned up three events for the rare hypernucleus.

When scientists first discovered the L hyperon in 1947, they observed a similarly longer lifetime than predicted for this “strange” object. That observation led to the idea of the existence of the strange quark, with strangeness being the property that causes the quark to live so long.

As the first evidence for 6ΛH hypernuclei, the results could shed light on strange matter, which is hypothesized to exist at the center of ultra-dense neutron stars. The physicists hope to investigate strange matter further by producing strange nuclear systems.

No proof and only scanty evidence that this predicted form of strange matter exists.

HEAVY MAGNETISM - NOT THE STRANGE NEWTONIAN GRAVITY

Quotes: “Physicists in Italy have discovered the first evidence of a rare nucleus that doesn’t exist in nature . . .”!?

"Hypernuclei are thought to form the core of strange matter that may exist in distant parts of the universe . . .".

AD: “Doesn’t exist in nature”!? Well, that’s why scientists invent all kind of strange matter and energies. Everything appears to be strange; unnatural and nonexistent when the scientific approaches are strange.

In spite of the discarded Newtonian ideas on the large cosmological scale, astrophysicist and cosmologists still are viewing all things in the observable universe from the gravity points of views.

Everything is electrodynamics and thermodynamics, from the smallest atom and its substructures to the largest of objects in cosmos.

Quote: “As the first evidence for 6ΛH hypernuclei, the results could shed light on strange matter, which is hypothesized to exist at the center of ultra-dense neutron stars. The physicists hope to investigate strange matter further by producing strange nuclear systems”.

AD: What really is “dense” in the neutron stars, is the electromagnetic force and field. There is nothing strange about this. The electromagnetic density and its swift rotation and the magnetic rays in neutron stars is confused to be heavy “gravity density”.

Get real!

Ivar, I have a question for you.
Do you think its possible that the Earths magnetic field flipping could be connected to the Earth crossing the galactic plane? It seems like the kind of connection you always talk about.

are ivar neilsen and holographic galaxy the same person?

I dont think they are the same person, just their part are interchangeable.

They will find that time-space intervals exist where the "large" degrades until it can not hold to the properties and laws of this this interval of universe, so it collapses into the "smaller" interval universe where it has just slightly too much heat, mass and energy. It explodes expending that small amount and settles into it's interval till it all repeats again, all in about 2-10 seconds. And no, I will not show you the math. It's too dangerous.
