Amaterasu Rain on Earth, Confused Researchers Don’t Know Its Origin Tech – 7 hours ago


Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Particles called Amaterasu were detected raining down on Earth. This is one of the highest energy cosmic rays ever detected.

However, this incident confused many researchers. The reason is, Amaterasu comes from the empty space of the Local Void which is directly adjacent to the Milky Way galaxy.

“Tracing its path back to its source and there’s no energy high enough to produce it. That’s the mystery, what’s really going on?” said one of the authors from the University of Utah, John Matthews, quoted from The GuardianTuesday (5/12/2023).


Regarding the trajectory of the void, the researchers think it may indicate a much larger magnetic deflection, an unknown source in the Local Void, or an incomplete understanding of the physics of high-energy particles.

The Amaterasu particle itself has an energy of more than 240 exa-electron vold (Eev). The total is more than the strongest particles ever created at the Large Hadron Collider.

Regarding that energy, The Guardian registering the same energy as a golf ball traveling at 95 mph. Amaterasu is second only to the Oh-My-God particle with a power of up to 320 Eev.

Matthews even said that nothing could beat the energy of that particle. “You need a large amount of energy, a very high magnetic field to be able to confine the particle as it accelerates,” he said.

The high energy of these particles even made Osaka Metropolitan University professor in Japan, Toshihiro Fujii think there was an error. Because we have never found that much energy.

“When I first discovered very high-energy cosmic rays, I thought there must be a mistake. Because they showed energy levels that had been unprecedented for three decades.” he explained.
