Cosmic ray spallation

As this NASA chart indicates, 70 percent or more of the universe consists of dark energy, about which we know next to nothing Other explanations of dark energy, called “quintessence,” originate from theoretical high-energy physics. In addition to baryons, photons, … Continue reading
