Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ask Andy DRAMATIC MEETING Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Ava age of Staten New for her What kappeni to'matter and antimatter when they Uranium is radioactive because particles of its matter keep turning into energy. A nuclear reactor also converts matter into energy. So we know under cer- tain dramatic matter can be converted into powerful doses of energy. particles of matter and antimatter do not wait for circumstances. When these opposites they instantly annihilate each other creating a spurt of highly energetic radiation.. The theory of antimatter is rather new and to understand it we must know a bit about matter. The liquids and solids in our world are or- dinary made from or- dinary atoms. The ordinary of is a well organized unit of infinitesimal atomic particles. A fair sized atqm has a swarm of electrons around a nucleus stuffed with protons and assorted mesons and about a couple of dozen other particles. Physicists have figured out the weight of about 30 different particles of ordinary also their magnetic and electrical qualities and several other properties. They now know that there are anti- particles to match each of them For the electron is a particle of matter with a negative electrical charge Its matching particle of an- timatter is the which has a positive electrical charge In a tank of there are uncountable zillions of or- dinary energetic electrons Now suppose a positron enters this picture It might have a chance to travel a centimeter and exist perhaps for one millionth part of a second maybe sooner but hard- ly it would come within close range of one of those teeming electrons. This spells instant annihilation for both the electron particle of matter and the positron particle of antimatter. The pair of op- posites becomes a spurt of gamma rays and other dynamic energies The larger proton particle of matter has a positive electrical charge. Its matching antiproton has a negative charge When they meet they annihilate each other into almost times more energy than did the electron-positron pair. Both the neutron and the anti- neutron are electrically though they have op- posite magnetic and other op- posite properties They too ali- nihilate each other and become energy. Obviously antimatter can- not exist for more than a mo- ment in our world of ordinary matter But in other parts of the separated by vast oceans of things may be different. It has been suggested that the mysterious quasars may be powered by fantastic conflicts between Flashback By The CANADIAN Dec. 1973 Laval the first French-language university in North was granted a royal charter 121 years ago to- day in 1852 The univer- sity's parent Semmaire de was founded in 1663 by Bishop Laval. The un- iversity was rebuilt and modernized on the Plains of Abraham The science faculty was founded in 1921 and the graduate school in 1939. 1949 Chiang Kai-shek proclaimed Taipei capital of all mainland China 1925 Adolf Hitler's Mem Kampf was published. 1865 The composer Jean Sibelius was born. 1660 The first woman appeared on the British stage. 65BC Qumtus Horatius Flaccus Horace was born. LI'L ABNER vast quantities of matter and antimatter. Cosmologists are wondering how antimatter fits into the entire structure of the Universe. It has been suggested that half the cosmic material may be ordinary matter and the other half an- timatter. Maybe there are en- tire stars and even galaxies of where stray par- ticles of ordinary matter would meet instant an- nihilation. an- timatter stars and galaxies could exist only if they were separated from ordinary stars and galaxies by vast oceans of outer space. Andy sends a seven volume set of The Chronicles of Nar- nia to Arlene age of St. Boniface Manitoba for her Are there plants at the bottom of the There are places where forests of trailing seaweeds cling to the floor of the waving their jgreenery in the moving water. But wherever this the water is sure to be shallow. Out in the deep there are masses of floating seaweeds. But wherever they they are sure to be near the surface. This is because seaweeds and all green plants need sunshine. They use sunlight to create their basic plant food. The floor of the deep ocean is two or three miles below the surface waves. You would think that sunbeams could plunge down through the all the way to the bot- tom After all they plunge hundreds of miles down through the air. But water is something different. Sunlight gets lost when it tries to plunge down through the deep sea Seaweeds and other plants can live only in the sunny surface perhaps to about half a mile deep No plants can live on the deep ocean floor where the water is blacker than blackest mid- night Questions asked by c1 ren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask P.O.'
