A Quantum Collision Just Created Matter From Light
Albert Einstein’s E = mc^2 is probably the most famous equation of physics that the German physicist gave in 1905. It’s a mathematical relationship between mass and energy. We have seen how matter can be converted into energy. But the question is that is the reverse also possible? Have we seen energy being converted into mass? We surely don’t see that happening in day-to-day life but this process has been confirmed in a recent experiment at the Brookhaven National Laboratory.
