Antimatter matter matters in deciphering universe formation

Antimatter atoms get annihilated whenever they contact matter, which makes them hard to study. So how can you manipulate antimatter atoms in order to study and measure them properly? A team of scientists says it has found a way to do that by slowing antimatter atoms with blasts from a Canadian-built laser, reports CBC. That could make it possible to create antimatter molecules – larger particles more similar to the matter we encounter in the real world – in the lab, the scientists say. The new technique would allow them to study antimatter properties and behaviour in more detail, compare it to matter, and help answer fundamental questions in physics regarding the origin of the universe.
