Weighing antimatter

Does antimatter behave like matter in gravity? This is the question a team of researchers wants to answer in the near future. If their behaviors happen to be different, it would have extremely important implications, and could maybe solve several long-standing problems.
Scientists from the University of California are on their …

Matter and antimatter – A fundamental symmetry confirmed

According to theory, matter and antimatter have exactly the same properties, except for the opposite electrical charge. Researchers have now calculated the antiproton mass relative to the electron with unprecedented precision: it weighs exactly the same as its matter counterpart, the proton.
The laws of nature are assumed to obey a …
