Scientists Ettore Majorana warned in advance that nuclear development could lead to the very destruction of humanity. So his disappearance under very mysterious circumstances raises eyebrows.
Enrico Fermi (1901-1954), an Italian physicist known for the development of the first nuclear reactor, a pioneer in the development of quantum theory, the subject of neutrinos, and Nobel Prize in Physics in 1938, said of Ettore Majorana (1906-?? ?) who was one of the key people was the development of Nuclear Physics.
Specifically, he stated: “There are several kinds of scientists. There are those of second and third-order, which do their job correctly. There are those of the first order, who make discoveries that support the progress of Science. And then there are the geniuses like Galileo or Newton. Ettore Majorana was one of them.
His exceptional mental capacity allowed him to predict the existence of particles that were later baptized as “Majorana Fermions”, in 1937 while experimental physicists managed to verify the reality of their existence, almost eight decades later, in 2014.
However, one fine day this renowned researcher decided —it is not clear why— to make a trip between Naples and Sicily on a ship that, in those days, officiated as a night courier bound for the city of Palermo. It happened exactly on March 25, 1938. Ettore Majorana was never heard from again! It was as if he had dissolved into thin air… or lost in the waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea!
The Italian nuclear physicist Bruno Pontecorvo (1913-1993), in his book Fermi and Modern Physics, points out: «… sometime after joining the Fermi group he already possessed such erudition and had reached such a level of understanding of Physics that he was able to talk as equals with Fermi about the problems of Science at that time».
“Fermi considered him the greatest theoretical physicist of his time,” adds Pontecorvo.
The Mysterious Disappearance Of Ettore Majorana
How to explain, then, the immediate disappearance of Ettore Majorana? A scientist of such stature can in no way dissolve in space and time without immediately attracting attention and launching an important search.
Although it is true that, in his last known letter, addressed to a colleague at the University of Naples – where he taught – he expressed his intention to commit suicide, the truth of the facts, however, will not be so obvious. What is initially attributed to an act of madness hides, on the contrary, many mysteries?
The young scientist, sensing the magnitude of his discoveries regarding atomic energy and its destructive power, and fearful of the consequences that could arise in the Europe of Hitler and Mussolini, perhaps chose silence, flight, and renunciation of his condition of brilliant scientist who, without a doubt, would amaze with numerous outstanding achievements.
In a recent and very well documented article by a graduate in Physics from the National University of Buenos Aires, Lic. José María Lentino, published in the magazine of the Argentine Scientific Society, we read: «Several theories try to explain the mystery. Suicide, as we have said, but also a change of identity and flight to another country, political assassination… All the clues vanish during that mysterious trip and little is known about the reasons he would have had for committing suicide. The subsequent search does not yield any results and even Mussolini, pressured by Majorana’s grieving mother, stamps in the file, in his own handwriting: “I want them to find him”.
Obviously, these were not times when a request from the Duce was ignored … but it was not found! Not even a body floating in the waters. Majorana had disappeared forever… without leaving the slightest trace.
And let us not forget that Mussolini had offered a reward of 30,000 lire to anyone who gave information – an astronomical sum in those days.
Historians have wisely surmised that Ettore Majorana either committed suicide or decided to disappear to avoid being a contributor to the creation of the atomic bomb. This researcher would have warned in advance that nuclear development could lead to the very destruction of humanity. So his ethical decision to disappear. Perhaps, start a new life in some isolated place in the world, with another identity and activity. Those who knew him best immediately ruled out suicide knowing that he was a fervently practicing Catholic. For greater precision, he had been educated in a college of the Jesuit Order.
It is interesting to note that, in one of the many moments of crisis in the Manhattan Project —which would lead to the creation of the first atomic bomb by the United States— Fermi commented: “I wish Ettore were here…”. General Groves listened, immediately asking who this Ettore was, in order to send for him at once. Laconic, the Italian physicist limited himself to answer: “No… He was a colleague who disappeared in 1938.”
Did Ettore Majorana Travel In Time?
He disappeared in 1938. It is in line with what, over time, some other expert colleagues in Quantum Physics have thought. That Ettore Majorana neither committed suicide, nor was he kidnapped, nor did he had an accident. Rather, he was able to develop a way of moving through space and time. Helping to support this possibility is the fact that both his companions and his sister maintained that, in the months before his sudden and unexpected disappearance, he was working feverishly on something “very important, but that he avoided talking about it.” ».
Was it intended to become a great quantum-mechanical wave that can be in every place that consciousness imagines it? And we point this out because Majorana was the first to announce what Quantum Physics corroborates today: there are intraatomic particles that, one and the same, can be in different places depending on where observers are detecting them.
For this reason, there are many who affirm that this scientist had managed to build a machine to travel through time. And to corroborate this, it should be noted that all the farewell letters written by Majorana before he disappeared —and which were taken as suicide notes— at no time indicate that he was going to kill himself, there is not even a hint of such a thing, they only express that already You will not be in communication with so many loved ones again.
It is also true that the Italian Justice never closed the investigation into his disappearance, much less appealing to the issue of suicide. On the contrary, the file was opened on several occasions following clues from those who claimed that he hid in a monastery somewhere in America to dedicate himself exclusively to prayer and meditation; others provided photos indicating that he was in Caracas or Buenos Aires— Looking exactly like his younger self.
The investigation still remains inconclusive. The mysterious disappearance of the man who did not want to invent the atomic bomb continues to be an issue to explain.
Ettore Majorana, did you travel to other dimensions of space and time?
