Scientists measure the magnetism of antimatter

A team of Harvard scientists has succeeded in measuring the magnetic charge of single particles of matter and antimatter more accurately than ever before.

Freezing antimatter could pin it down for study

Antimatter's not the easiest stuff to work with - the minute it encounters ordinary matter it self-destructs. Now, though, scientists believe they've found a way to keep it in one place for long enough to study, by cooling it right down.

Team gets first look inside anti-matter atom

Scientists have for the first time been able to peer inside an atom made entirely of antimatter and take a look at its internal structure.

Could antimatter weigh more than matter?

Antimatter may weigh more than matter of the same mass, say physicists at the University of California, Riverside, who are attempting to establish how it behaves in gravity.

Chinese neutrino experiment up and running

Two new detectors in China have started recording the interaction of antineutrinos in an experiment that could help explain why matter predominates over antimatter in the universe.

Belt of antimatter found circling Earth

The Earth is surrounded by a belt of antimatter - and it could perhaps be used to power future spacecraft, a team of scientists has suggested.

US team creates 'atom' containing antimatter

Physicists at the University of California, Riverside say they've made what could be a big breakthrough in the understanding of antimatter.

Antimatter trapped for 1,000 seconds

CERN scientists have succeeding in trapping antimatter for a record 16 and a half minutes -  long enough to begin studying it in detail.

US team discovers heaviest antimatter yet

Scientists at the US Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have made the heaviest antimatter ever found.   

Thunderstorms on Earth blast antimatter into space

Scientists have for the first time discovered that antimatter is regularly being produced on Earth - by thunderstorms.

Team says it can make matter and antimatter out of nothing

In the beginning was the equation - and University of Michigan researchers say they've demonstrated mathematically that it's possible to make something out of nothing.

Antimatter atoms trapped for first time

Scientists at CERN have succeeded for the first time in capturing and storing antimatter - albeit for only a fraction of a second. The team successfully created 38 hydrogen 'anti-atoms', and hung onto them long enough to study.

$2bn space experiment seeks out 'anti-universe'

What's being described as one of the most complex space scientific instruments ever built is on its way to the International Space Station to seek out the 'dark universe'.

'Law of nature' broken, say physicists

Scientists at Brookhaven National Laboratory say they have broken one of the laws of nature.
