Back in the years after WW2, newly discovered antimatter was perceived as destroying ordinary matter, so in one of old Freddy's insane nightmares (forget which book, but it was the early 1950's) he envisioned YHWH-JESUS hurling antimatter at the hated humans who refused to submit to him, and destroying their bodies bit by bit.
Now, his vision dims:
Antimatter not so different after all
Scientists help make first measurement of antiproton attraction
- November 4, 2015
- Rice University
- Researchers share the first measurements of the attractive force between antiprotons. The discovery gives physicists new ways to look at the forces that bind matter and antimatter.
- Kefeng Xin, a graduate student at Rice, is one of a handful of primary authors who revealed evidence this week that the attractive force between antiprotons is similar to that between protons -- and measured it.
