1st August 2005 – Antimatter

Antimatter – does it matter?

crab-nebulaProfessor Roger Barlow of Manchester University High Energy Physics Department led the discussion on “where’s all the antimatter gone?”. Could we fly to another planet only to be annihilated  when we find it’s made of antimatter? What is this stuff that’s not good for your health, and where do we find it? Can we use it for anything when we find it?

Roger started with a very clear, succinct description of what antimatter was and the lively discussion continued with several “new theories” coming from the attendees which were put into context by Professor Barlow.
