Looking through solid objects?

  1. Jan 31, 2007 #1
    Can it be done? Quantum Physics (QP) states that at a quantum level there is more space between the atoms that make up all physical solid objects. Does this mean that, from space with a high powered telescope looking at the moon, you can zoom in onto the surface, then using the 'N-SET' equation, continue to zoom in until you focus on the surface of the earth (behind the moon)? If this is right, I believe there would be a large 'black area' between the two focus points. I don't know if this theory can even be tested or worked out mathematically but believe it would work. I think it could only be achieved on this large scale and not in the lab. There is a camera lens that can focus on foreground and background at the same time. This lens may be needed in-place of the telescope but either way, with the use of the N-Set it should work. I am interested what professionals in the QP field think of this theory. Although I have a general understanding of QP, I am not an expert. I can't imagine an experiment being done without the mathematics backing up the theory, due to the cost involved because of the scale. Looking forward to any discussion on this. Thanks, BigMak.
