The study provides insight into the structure of antimatter
nuclei, which consist of bound antiprotons and antineutrons.
Scientists have been aware of antiprotons, the antimatter
equivalent of protons, for sometime, but it proves challenging to create sufficient antiprotons for measuring their interaction.
This groundbreaking discovery has earned the respect of the astronomy world as it is the only optical technology today that can detect antimatter
particles, the negative counterpart of regular matter.
Unmatter as theoretically predicted in the framework of the neutrosophic logic and statistics [4-6] is considered as a combination of matter and antimatter
that bound together, or a long-range mixture of matter and antimatter
forming a weakly-coupled phase.
The favorable scaling of electron-positron pairs with laser energy obtained in our experiments suggests that, at a laser intensity and pulse duration comparable to what is available, near-future 10 kilojoule class lasers would provide 100 times higher antimatter
asymmetry is one of the greatest challenges in physics and at this moment in time the universe seems to be composed entirely of matter - the only antimatter
around is created by us at places like CERN.
Alpha was the first experiment to trap atoms of antihydrogen - neutral antimatter
atoms held in place with a strong magnetic field for up to 1,000 seconds.
In a forthcoming paper in the journal Physical Review Letters, an international team of researchers describe how they found extra antimatter
particles, particularly positrons in the cosmic rays headed toward Earth 6 a possible dark matter signature.
Current theories predict that the properties of antimatter
should be the same as those for matter, so the ALPHA team hit the antihydrogen with microwave signals at frequencies that would cause a spin flip in a normal hydrogen atom.
A positron is the antimatter

Summary: Scientists are celebrating successfully capturing antimatter
, which could help provide an insight into how the universe was created.
It will use the unique environment of space to study the universe and its origin by searching for antimatter
and dark matter
Many Americans who overindulged on Thanksgiving may be thinking a bit of antimatter
might not be a bad idea right about now.
Physicists have created, and for the first time trapped, antimatter
atoms, one of the biggest mysteries of modern science, the European Centre for Nuclear Research says.
The assassin threatens to kill the cardinals and destroy the Vatican City using a recently discovered antimatter
which will explode somewhere in the city on the stroke of midnight.
