Einstein’s Formula Is Used To Make Matter From Light After 100 Years

We know that, What does E=mc2 mean? The world’s most famous equation is both straightforward and very complex meaning at the same time: “Energy equals mass times the speed of light squared.


According to Einstein’s theory of special relativity, published in 1905, light can be converted into matter when two light particles collide with intense force. But, try as they might, scientists have never been able to do this. No one could create the conditions needed to transform light into matter until now.


Scientists claim to have generated matter from pure light for the first time a spectacular display of Einstein’s most famous equation E=mc2.


This is a significant breakthrough, overcoming a theoretical barrier that seemed to be almost impossible only a few decades ago.

At its most basic level, it means energy and mass are various forms of the same thing. Energy may transform into mass and vice versa under the right and much needed circumstances.


Now, imagine a light beam transforming into, say, a paper clip, and it seems like pure magic. That’s where the “speed of light squared” factors in. It determines how much energy a paper clip or any piece of matter contains. The speed of light is the factor needed to make mass and energy equal. If every atom in a paper clip could be converted to pure energy, it would generate 18 kilotons of TNT. That’s around the size of the Hiroshima bomb from 1945.
