Cern scientists have successfully cooled antimatter with a laser for the first time.
Laser-cooling enables new measurements that could explain why antimatter is so scarce in our universe.
There’s a lot of matter in the universe, here the cat paw nebula of dust and gas.
New physics may be needed to explain why there's more matter than antimatter in the universe.
The supernova remnant Cassiopeia A.
When scientists created the Higgs particle with protons, they needed the 10km-wide Large Hadron Collider. A muon machine could achieve it with a diameter of just 200 metres.
Is there anybody out there?
From the subatomic to the cosmic, don't think for a second that we're at the end of scientific history.
The Milky Way as seen from Yellowstone National Park.
A new experiment at CERN has discovered a source of asymmetry between matter and antimatter that could help explain why we are here at all.
The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) could help unravel the mysteries of antimatter and complete scientists' next model of the universe.
There’s a lot we still don’t know about antimatter.
One of the great mysteries of the universe is why there is so much more matter than antimatter. Now a new experiment is helping us understand the nature of antimatter better than ever before.
When particles collide.
New research has compared hydrogen and antihydrogen up to ten decimal places for the very first time.
Antimemory, the yin to memory’s yang.
The theory of antimemories could help explain many cognitive problems in the brain such as autism and schizophrenia.
There’s evidence that antimatter is produced in thunderstorms.
Antimatter is at the heart of one of the biggest conundrums in physics. Here's why.

The tiniest of particles could have huge potential to solve the greatest mysteries of the universe - including why there is more matter than antimatter.
The atmosphere of black holes contain a matter-antimatter plasma.
An exotic plasma could help shed light on why the universe as we know it is made up of more matter than antimatter.
Researchers at the CERN Laboratory in Geneva have taken the first spectroscopic measurements of antihydrogen, marking an…
Researchers have developed, for the first time, a method to efficiently produce long-lived “positronium” – a bound state…
Get to grips with the latest development in cosmic couture.
In the past week, many media outlets have reported the discovery of an antimatter “belt” circling the earth. A range of potential uses for this belt have already been floated – perhaps the most exciting…
