Peculiar RealmRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
I often make my home
Inside of a glass dome
In my domain a sound
Is never to be found
But through me I permit
Any light to transmit
In science articles
When "pro-" and "anti-" mate
What am I?
lines 1-2: Incandescent light bulbs and old-fashioned television and radio tubes contain a vacuum.
lines 3-4: Sound cannot travel through a vacuum.
lines 5-6: Light can travel through a vacuum.
lines 7-10: In a vacuum, at the quantum (subatomic) level, matter and antimatter in the form of virtual particles are continuously being created and then almost immediately collide with each other, destroying themselves.
