We just got the first real evidence of a strange quantum distortion in empty space
For the first time, astronomers have observed a strange quantum phenomenon in action, where a neutron star is surrounded by a magnetic field so intense, itís given rise to a region in empty space where matter spontaneously pops in and out of existence.

Called vacuum birefringence, this bizarre phenomenon was first predicted back in the 1930s, but had only ever been observed on the atomic scale. Now scientists have finally seen it occur in nature, and it goes against everything that Newton and Einstein had mapped out.

"This is a macroscopic manifestation of quantum field," Jeremy Heyl from the University of British Columbia in Canada, who was not involved in the research, told Science. "Itís manifest on the scale of a neutron star."

An international team of astronomers led by Roberto Mignani from INAF Milan in Italy made the discovery while observing a neutron star called RX J1856.5-3754 that's 400 light-years from Earth.

Neutron stars are the crushed cores of massive stars that collapsed under their own weight when they ran out of fuel, and exploded as a supernova.

Theyíre made of some of the most dense material in the Universe - just 1 teaspoon of the stuff would weigh 1 billion tons on Earth - and their crust is 10 billion times stronger than steel.

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

How 'empty' is space?
 Quoting: Searchalot


As far as a ordinary matter is concerned, there's always a few hydrogen atoms per cubic meter. It's a statistical average, of course, and the real density varies somewhat. In comparison, on earth there are about 10^25 particles per cubic meter.

In addition to matter, the space is full of energy in form of electromagnetic fields (everything from infrared to hard gamma rays), and you can't ignore energy-to-matter conversion.

Sometimes an extremely strong electromagnetic field produces positron and electron pairs. The two usually annihilate (matter - anti-matter reaction) back into energy almost instantly, but sometimes they become separated and remain in matter state.

Time dilation, matter popping into time-space from space-time, something interesting must be occurring in time-space that we will see eventually. Nice time to be alive.

How 'empty' is space?

Space is a type of existence. Space is a "thing". Pure and absolute non-existence is not the same as empty space. Take a geometric block of pure, empty space now take space away from it. Ow, my head just blowed up.

Proves that everything really is in superposition, in all possible locations yet nowhere specific until it's observed. I think when we really understand quantum mechanics we will be almost as close to God as we can be.

Thank you FP - for consistently rising above the rabble that is now GLP and giving us good tidbits that open our consciousness to the vastness and wonder of the Universe.

It is such a refreshing break from wading through the rest of the speculation, and un-vetted drivel to find the pearls.

R.I.P. for the real Wubbo Ockels. He was a true icon of my country, and a great front-fighter for sustainable energie/technology and humanism.

"Yes, we have hurdles, we have distractions, we have disasters, personally and world-wide, and we do have to work it all out ourselves. BUT, there is a most amazing experience awaiting us on the other end of the finish-line.
The idea being, once we can handle it all down here, then we can live and explore eternally, responsibly, because we know what not to do, and not be resentful about being responsible, so we don't start a polarity domino effect in the other realms of existence."
