For the First Time, Physicists Have Measured the "Strong Force" of Antimatter

The nuclear strong force binds the smallest bits of matter together to form atoms, thereby making our material world possible. Physicists at Brookhaven National Laboratory have made the first-ever measurement of a similar strong force for antimatter — the mirror image of regular matter that lies at the heart of one of… »11/09/15 6:34pm11/09/15 6:34pm


Antimatter Will Surf on Plasma Waves in the Particle Colliders of the Future

The best way to study the subatomic particles that make up the most fundamental building blocks of our universe is, of course, to smash them into each other with as much energy as possible. And now physicists at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory say they’ve found a better way to do that. »8/30/15 6:30pm8/30/15 6:30pm
