Latest Antimatter Stories
For decades scientists have wondered whether a mysterious form of matter – known simply as Dark Matter since it does not interact directly with light – makes up the majority of the “stuff” in the Universe.
By aiming a laser at antihydrogen atoms, researchers have found that they can force them to lose energy and plummet to temperatures 25-times colder than previously achieved -- a discovery which could greatly assist the study of the more elusive properties of antimatter.
When the sun launched a moderate, or M-class, solar flare May 17, 2012, it was still one of the largest eruptions seen since late January when our star began to rouse from an anomalously long quiet period.
An international team of physicists at CERN (the European Laboratory for Particle Physics) used microwaves to measure and manipulate an atom made of antimatter for the first time ever.
A team of researchers from the University of California, Riverside (UCR) say they are close to determining whether or not anti-matter exerts a sort of "anti-gravity" in much the same what that ordinary matter exerts regular gravity.
Does antimatter behave differently in gravity than matter?
New research adds doubt that a prominent European astrophysics experiment may have found evidence of dark matter.
Why there is stuff in the universe—more properly, why there is an imbalance between matter and antimatter—is one of the long-standing mysteries of cosmology.
A simple atomic nucleus could reveal properties associated with the mysterious phenomenon known as time reversal and lead to an explanation for one of the greatest mysteries of physics: the imbalance of matter and antimatter in the universe.
