Antimatter: A Major Scientific Breakthrough?
"The Globe and Mail" Newspaper recently reported that An international team of 42 scientists, which included 15 Canadians, have trapped 38 antihydrogen atoms – one by one – for a fraction of a second. managed to trap antimatter Antimatter captured in major scientific breakthrough.
A long time ago, I was interested in “antimatter” research. This is definitely a scientific breakthrough, however, the speed of production of anti-hydrogen is 100 molecules per minute, so in order to obtain 1-kg of material, it would take approximately 100 billion years. We can’t wait that long and need something quicker.
