Pamela Fleming, Vice President of the Institute for Basic Research, Palm Harbor, Florida, announces the publication in February 2014 of the first study of the trajectories of antimatter asteroids in our Solar system that could hit Earth. The study was done by S. Beghella-Bartoli, an expert in trajectories of matter asteroids in our Solar system, with the review by an international panel of experts in antimatter (http://www.santilli-foundation.org/docs/Simone-Final.pdf). New York, May 12,...

CERN Finds Matter-Antimatter Asymmetry
2013-04-24 14:40:18

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists at CERN have submitted a paper to be published in the journal Physical Review Letters about the first observation of matter-antimatter asymmetry. The team said they made the observation while looking at the decay rate of particles known as B0s mesons. They now say that their findings indicate that antimatter decays at a faster rate than antimatter. Matter and antimatter are thought to have existed in equal amounts at the...

Antimatter Method Could Provide Major Experimental Advantage

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online 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. The method, which was developed by a team of experts from the US and Canada, is described in the most recent edition of the Journal of Physics B: Atomic, Molecular...

Microwaves Used In First Time Measurement Of Antimatter Atom
2012-03-08 05:43:30

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. While imprecise, the measurement represents an important first step in being able to study antimatter atoms in detail --  a critical part of understanding why the universe is made of matter and not antimatter. "This is the first time that anyone has ever interacted with an antimatter atom," said lead...

In a study published in the journal Nature Physics, researchers report trapping some 300 antihydrogen atoms for a record 16 minutes, a stunning technical feat that promises deeper insights into the mysteries of antimatter. Particles and anti-particles annihilate each other in a small flash of energy when they collide making the study of them extremely difficult. Fourteen-million years ago, at the moment of the big bang, matter and antimatter are believed to have existed in equal quantities....

European scientists said on Monday that the creation and capture of anti-hydrogen atoms has put them on track to solving one of the greatest cosmic mysteries. Anti-matter is of intense interest outside the global scientific community because it has often been thought of as a potential source of boundless and almost cost-free energy. The announcement from the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) came just three weeks after another of the three teams at the particle research...

Physicists working at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced on Wednesday that they had successfully trapped and stored antimatter atoms for the first time ever. Scientists from the Geneva, Switzerland-based research organization, in association with the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California at Berkeley, trapped a substance known as antihydrogen--the antimatter equivalent of hydrogen. The international...

Discovery may challenge physics fundamentals In the movie Angels and Demons, scientists have solved one of the most perplexing scientific problems: the capture and storage of antimatter. In real life, trapping atomic antimatter has never been accomplished, until now. A team made up of researchers from the University of Calgary, institutions across Canada and around the world have discovered how to trap atomic antimatter and the results of their discovery is published in the journal Nature....

A massive particle detector that will search the reaches of outer space for antimatter and other clues about the origins of the universe began the initial steps towards its voyage to the International Space Station on Wednesday. The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) loaded the $2 billion Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer onto a giant C5 Galaxy U.S. Air Force transport plane at the Geneva airport, which will take off Thursday for Kennedy Space Center in Florida. "The AMS left the...

First-ever paper on Large Hadron Collider proton collisions published online in European Physical Journal C The first paper on proton collisions in the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) - designed to provide the highest energy ever explored with particle accelerators - is published online this week in Springer's European Physical Journal C. On 23 November 2009, during the early commissioning of the CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) LHC "“ which was built in the circular...
