Relativity Part 2 Verifiable Predictions

Continuing in the logical steps of the previous chapter, we arrive at a prediction with great practical consequences. Matter and energy are equivalent and related by the equation E = mc2. From the hypotheses of symmetry of space and constancy of the speed of light comes the prediction that matter can be converted into energy and energy into matter. Historical figure: Albert Einstein.

Chapter 17 Epilogue. The creation of matter out of energy revealed a whole new world of fundamental particles, including the theoretically predicted or 'heavy atom of light', the W particle.
