Mirror-image of other worlds found Thursday, 13, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Christian Science Monitor At last, after decades of speculation, astronomers feel they may have evidence for the existence of "mirror- image" worlds elsewhere in the universe. Mankind could look at these twin worlds, but never touch.

Such worlds would be made of what physicists call anti- matter. This is very like or- dinary matter except that cer- tain properties, such as electric charge, are reversed. In earthly laboratories, par- ticles of matter and anti- matter form in equal amounts out of pure energy. The two kinds of mattter recombine again into radiant energy when they meet. It this happens in the laboratory, should it not also happen in the larger universe? scientists ask. And in the vastness of space, where the two kinds of matter could ex- ist isolated from each other, should not anti-matter worlds exist today? Basic theory answers "yes" to both questions. But, until now, there has been no posi- tive indication that cosmic anti-matter does, in fact, ex- ist. Now, analyses of obser- vations made during Apollo 15 and 16 moon missions, as well as preliminary data from the high energy radiation observing satellite SAS-B, show the distinctive kind of radiation that Floyd W. Sleeker of America's Goddard Space Flight Centre calculates must come from the collision of matter and anti-matter in space. Starting with the spectrum of radiation given off by particle antiparticle collisions in the laboratory, Dr Sleeker predicted that there should be a "bulge" in the universe's gamma-ray spectrum in the 100 million election volt range. Gamma rays are like x-rays only they are even more energetic. The size of this special bulge. Dr. Stecker says, cor- responds to the average volume of the regions of matter and anti-matter. In smaller-sized regions there would be more points of con- tact between matter and anti- matter worlds, more collisions, and so more gamma radiation. Conversely, the larger the region, the smaller this intensity should be. These latest results show only a small increase, so the regions must be very large about the size of clusters of galaxies. Our own galaxy, however, appears to be com- posed totally of ordinary matter. When matter meets matter U.S. seeks oil arrangement New York Times Service PARIS The United States sought to spur efforts of the major western nations to work out oil sharing arrangements as insurance against any threatened cut- back in Arab petroleum supplies. The action, at a secret ses- sion of the oil committee of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, came as the Nixon administration is preparing a crash program to make the United States independent of foreign sources of energy within five years. A large delegation from Washington met here today with energy officials from western Europe, Canada and Japan at OECD headquarters. Meetings will continue tomorrow. Because of the political sen- sitivity of the subject follow- ing Arab threats to use oil as an instrument for forcing Mid- dle East policy changes by Washington and following the nationalization earlier this month of oil companies in Libya, a tight lid was put on information, L. G. Wansink, director general for energy at the Dutch economics ministry, who was chairman, brushed aside all questions. American officials refused to comment on the substance of the talks. Reliable conference sources reported that the oil consumer countries want to avoid a showdown with Libya over nationalization and are not pressing ahead with any plans to boycott Libyan oil. Libya also is apparently moving cautiously by remain- ing vague on any compensa- tion she would pay to the four American companies Tex- aco, California Standard, Exx- on and Mobil and the British-Dutch Shell group, whose properties were taken over. Analysts believe it would be very difficult for the OECD states to agree on a unified position because of sharp variations in the national oil policies France and Japan, for in- stance, are strongly against a consumer bloc that would be an instrument of confronta- tion with the producer countries Conference sources reported that there have been two general formulas suggested one by the United States which would base the quotas in the pool on imports. and the other by Japan which would base quotas on con- sumption.
