From the top expert in physics, Einstein.
"It followed from the special theory of relativity that mass and energy are both but different manifestations of the same thing -- a somewhat unfamiliar conception for the average mind. Furthermore, the equation E is equal to m c-squared, in which energy is put equal to mass, multiplied by the square of the velocity of light, showed that very small amounts of mass may be converted into a very large amount of energy and vice versa. The mass and energy were in fact equivalent, according to the formula mentioned above. This was demonstrated by Cockcroft and Walton in 1932, experimentally."
but few know that Einstein was aware of Hannes Alfen's ( 1970 Noble Prize winner by the way for his work )idea of Cosmic Plamas , it was just too complicated at the time
