Well this is a doubt that comes from some time ago and I haven't found the answer on the net. Quantum fluctuations in quantum vacuum create particle-antiparticle pairs for very short periods of time satisfying ΔEΔt≥[itex]\frac{\hslash}{2}[/itex] It is very well known that when a pair particle-antiparticle come together annihilate and emite two photons. What happens exactly in quantum foam, why does't this happen. Do they disappear too fast for even annihilating?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

By the way sorry for my english I'm from Spain :D
