CERN scientists trap antimatter
Researchers have produced and captured antihydrogen atoms using strong magnetic fields in the Alpha experiment at CERN.
Physicists at CERN have taken a major step forward in antimatter research, according to the European science organization.
Learning how to trap the antimatter atoms, which were antihydrogen, will allow scientists from CERN's Alpha experiment to study the antiparticles, CERN told ZDNet UK yesterday. "This is a momentous step in the study of antimatter," Alpha experiment spokesman Jeffrey Hangst said.
