Plane records flight through mysterious antimatter thundercloud

In what sounds like a tale from the Bermuda Triangle, an atmospheric physicist, called Joseph Dwyer, was flying through a massive thunderstorm, when he suddenly found himself in the middle of a huge cloud of antimatter.

Why is the Universe full of ‘stuff’ and not nothingness?

Los Angeles - Physicists at UCLA have a new slant on the origin of matter in the universe. That stars and planets are made of stuff we call matter is self-evident, but where did that stuff come from?

Antimatter experiment may make apple fall upwards

After the recent discovery of the Higgs boson, a group called ALPHA at CERN's Hadron Collider near Geneva, Switzerland, is continuing the quest to find answers to the riddles of the universe.

Canadian scientists are the first to measure the antimatter atom

Burnaby - A team of Canadian physicists have measured an antimatter atom for the first time. The research could prove to be important in understanding the Big Bang and the creation of the universe.

Scientists trap antimatter long enough for study

Geneva - CERN reported the ALPHA experiment successfully isolated and detained more than 300 antimatter atoms for over 16 minutes, just long enough for these elusive particles to relax and settle down, so scientists can begin to get to know them much better.

NASA confirms antimatter production in thunderstorms

NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has detected the creation of antimatter paricles during thunderstorms in earth's atmosphere.

Antimatter successfully captured and stored

In what may be one of the most important historical scientific achievements in physics, scientists from CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research near Geneva, Switzerland have successfully isolated anti-hydrogen atoms.

Heaviest antimatter discovered

Antimatter, the inverted state of matter described as “negative matter”, is hard to find and tougher to analyze. A new heavy antimatter particle, including an anti proton and anti neutron, has been found by the Brookhaven facility.

'Death should happen only once' likely not true in some stars

Astronomers are scratching their heads in curiosity after a star exploded in 2004 and then had another massive explosion in 2006 which destroyed it forever.
