Pamela Fleming, spokesperson of The Institute for Basic Research, Palm Harbor, Florida, has released an open letter to the Directors of Cern laboratories in Geneva, Switzerland, containing unchallenged
First theorized in 1934 by a pair of scientists – Gregory Breit and John Wheeler – turning light into matter was deemed a fantastical and equally impossible feat.

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.
