“It’s almost science fiction to be driving around antimatter in a truck,” says Charles Horowitz, a theoretical nuclear physicist at Indiana University Bloomington. “It’s a wonderful idea.” Antimatter is notoriously volatile, but physicists have learned to control it so well...
Antimatter is notoriously tricky to store and study, thanks to the fact that it will vanish in a burst of energy if it so much as touches regular matter. The CERN lab is one of the only places in the world that can readily produce the stuff, but getting it into the hands of the scientists who want to study it is another matter (pun not intended).

A team of researchers working on the antiProton Unstable Matter Annihilation (PUMA) project near CERN's particle laboratory, according to a report in Nature, plans to capture a billion antiprotons, put them in a shipping container and transfer them to a lab that is conducting experiments collectively called ISOLDE.
Researchers at CERN have gotten comfortable with antimatter -- so comfortable, in fact, they're planning to load a billion antimatter particles into a van for a quick field trip. The post CERN to Transport Antimatter in a Van to Study Neutron Stars appeared first on ExtremeTech.
A week-long international School on Low Energy Antimatter Physics will be held at CERN between the 25th and the 29th of June 2018. It will cover the challenges in antimatter facility design and optimization, beyond state of the art beam...Show More Summary
Meet the elusive odderon.
With Feb. 11 marking the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, female physicists, engineers and computer scientists from CERN and Fermilab share their experiences of building a career in science.
Two test detectors being installed and tested at CERN are the prototypes of the much larger detectors planned for DUNE, the biggest international science project ever conducted in the United States and hosted by Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.
Liverpool physicists are celebrating after a vital component of the global neutrino experiment – the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) – which they have helped construct has been delivered to CERN for testing.
The CMS Collaboration at CERN have just made public around half of the data collected in 2012 by the CMS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. This release includes sets used to discover the Higgs boson, and is being shared through the CERN Open Data portal.
Crab cavities (Image: Julien Ordan/ CERN) The latest issue of Accelerating News is now online. In this issue you can read about: the challenges that have come with the HL-LHC crab cavity cryomodules, exploring unchartered waters with...Show More Summary
This year CERN's data centre broke its own record, when it collected more data than ever before.
Today, the new CERN-MEDICIS facility has produced radioisotopes for medical research for the first time. MEDICIS (Medical Isotopes Collected from ISOLDE) aims to provide a wide range of radioisotopes, some of which can be produced only at CERN thanks to the unique ISOLDE facility. Show More Summary
(Aalto University) Thousands of researchers at the CERN research centre are looking for particles and phenomena that standard physics cannot explain. Aalto University doctoral student Juska Pekkanen is part of a group working with the highest collision energies ever achieved.
Particle with two bottom quarks could be seen at CERN
CERN is taking part in a project, called ARIA, for the construction of a 350-metre-tall distillation tower that will be used to purify liquid argon (LAr) for scientific and, in a second phase, medical use.
For the first time, the LHCb experiment at CERN has collected data simultaneously in collider and in fixed-target modes. With this, the LHCb special run is even more special.
