The second ingredient that is needed to create antihydrogen are antiprotons. The Antiproton, p, is the antimatter counterpart of a proton. Antiprotons can be produced in collisions involving cosmic rays, but do not occur on earth naturally. That’s why we need to produce them with the accelerators at CERN.
Members of the ALPHA Collaboration from Canada were recently awarded the NSERC John C. Polanyi Award for their contributions to ALPHA's sucesses in trapping and measuring antihydrogen atoms.
Physicists have long wondered if the gravitational interaction between antimatter and matter might be different than that between matter and itself. Do atoms made of antimatter, like antihydrogen, fall at a different rate to those made of matter, or might they even fall up – antigravity?
