A 360° vista showing the entire sky, with visible structures stretching back in distance, time and redshift. ) The most distant light we observe comes from the radiation left over from the Big Bang: the cosmic microwave background. As we descend the chart, we find the most distant objects known, followed by a web of Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) quasars and galaxies. Closer to home, we start to see a collection of familiar ‘near’ galaxies (triangles). 7554 (in the favoured cosmological models), the Universe undergoes a transition from a slowing expansion to an accelerating one.
Here, the situation is more complicated: even the reaction between an electron and the simplest polyatomic molecule, H+ 3 (which can be thought of as a hydrogen molecule, H2, with an extra proton, H+) has puzzled both theorists and experimentalists for decades. 1 describe an ingenious experiment that provides further elucidation of the speed of this fundamental reaction. When an electron approaches a singly charged positive ion (call it X+), both bodies experience an attraction that accelerates them and causes them to collide.
