Exploring bleeding edge experiments, oddities, new and bizarre dicoveries, and fact-checking conspiracy theories since 2008. No question is out of bounds and no topic is too strange for a deep dive.
The universe may be the way it is today because the physics of matter and antimatter work just a bit differently...
Antimatter is technically a paradox that shouldn't exist alongside ordinary matter. So how does it still exist? And what can we do with it?
Like warp drives, suspended animation, and teleportation, antimatter is a frequent staple of science fiction. But what exactly is it, and could we ever use it to do amazing things?
Why space as we know is dominated by matter instead of its oppositely charged twin is a long standing question in physics. Now, experiments at the LHC are providing a glimpse at an answer.
CERN wants to investigate how antimatter falls by creating and dropping anti-hydrogen atoms, adding to our understanding of particle physics and its applications.
Antimatter will need to be the fuel of the future if we want technology like relativistic spaceships and black hole reactors.
A new way of creating positrons hints at a potential shortcut towards antimatter engines. But we're still a long way off from such spacecraft...
Antimatter-powered spacecraft just got a step closer to reality. But of course, there are some big caveats...
