Scientists have not fully solved a very energetic mystery of light, and now they have another mystery in their hands. Sciencenews reports that a team that uses high altitude air observatories based in China (Lhaaso) has detected the most energetic light until now comes from a group of dozen gamma ray “hotspots,” with the most energy originating from 1.4 quadrillion electron volt rays. Ray-record-settings were previously managed ‘only’ under the Volt Electron Quadrillion.
This discovery indicates that the Milky Galaxy Sakti is loaded with particle accelerators who drive electrons and protons to extreme speeds. It is not always clear what produces this hotspot, even though the nebula and nurseries (like Cygnus Cocoon) have become candidates.
This might also signal more inventions. Lhaaso will only finish later in 2021. It is expected to find more than this intense light source. That, in turn, can provide more answers to their creation and systems that encourage the universe.
