  • Surrounding a very small and dense nucleus of protons and neutrons is a “cloud” of electrons with orbits as large as 100,000 times the diameter of the atom’s nucleus.

    Nothing Matters

  • Current thinking is that a small component of dark matter is baryonic, meaning stuff composed of protons and neutrons, which is in the form of cold gas and dense, non-radiant objects such black holes, neutron stars, brown dwarfs and orphaned planets traditional known as Massive Astrophysical Compact Halo Objects – or MACHOs.

  • The two chemists had sketchy evidence for the element tritium, which can be produced when two deuterium atoms fuse, and a trickle of particles called neutrons, which are emitted in fusion but which theory suggests should be far more prolific.

    Cold Fusion: The Ghost of Free Energy

  • The researchers exposed the test chamber to subatomic particles called neutrons and then bombarded the liquid with a specific frequency of ultrasound, which caused cavities to form into tiny bubbles.

  • In 1938, he undertook experiments in cosmic radiation and employed methods of directly recording the tracks of the particles in photographic emulsions and, when the Cockcroft machine came into operation, he employed similar methods for determining the energy of neutrons, that is, by observing the tracks of the recoiling protons.
