The positronium atoms are seen to destroy one another, turning into gamma radiation, a powerful type of electromagnetic radiation....

Word of the Day
  • A large punch-bowl of the eighteenth century, usually of silver and with a movable rim, and decorated with flutings and a scalloped edge. It was also used for cooling and carrying wine-glasses.
