Antimatter discovered!

Post by bassoonuba » Wed Nov 17, 2010 8:30 pm

I knew that this is like the Holy Grail of physics but, I never thought that I would see the day where it actually occurs. Scientists at CERN were actually able to produce and contain antimatter. What does this mean for us? Travel at the speed of light, enough energy to power the planet without relying on fossil fuels, and a greater understanding of how our universe was formed.
