When we think of navigation, we usually think of maps, GPS, and other technologies that help us navigate the surface of the Earth. However, what to do if you are in a deep underground space where there is no light and GPS does not work? In that case, space subatomic particles could be our salvation.
What are cosmic subatomic particles?
Cosmic Subatomic Particles (SCPs) are particles that constantly fall to Earth from outer space. They are created by the interaction of cosmic rays with the Earth’s atmosphere. SCPs consist of elementary particles such as electrons, protons, neutrons, and others.
How can ELFs help in navigating underground?
ELFs can be used to locate locations underground. When the ELFs pass through materials such as rocks or earth, they interact with atoms in those materials, creating an effect called a cascade. A shower cascade is a cascade of particles that are created when an ELF interacts with a material. These particles can be detected and used to locate underground.
How does this work in practice?
Researchers in Japan conducted an experiment to test how accurately a location can be determined underground using a CSF. They used detectors to measure the stormwater cascades created by the RBCs as they passed through the rocks. The researchers found that they could pinpoint the location underground to within a few meters.
This discovery has important implications for various fields, including geology, geophysics and mining. For example, CLRs can be used to search for minerals such as gold, silver and other metals. Also, the CSF can be used to study the internal structure of the Earth and to predict earthquakes.
In conclusion, cosmic subatomic particles are an amazing phenomenon that can help us navigate underground. Research in this area continues, and we can expect even more progress in the near future.
