Antimatter Atoms Trapped for More Than 15 Minutes CERN physicists

 In a study published online June 5 in Nature Physics, the ALPHA group reports having confined antihydrogen for 16 minutes and 40 seconds.  more

Someone had a posted a great question... "Perhaps the most basic question about antimatter that has not yet been definitively determined is how it interacts gravitationally with other antimatter and with matter. While the overwhelming consensus is that there should be no different in the gravitational effects of matter and antimatter it has been difficult to establish - perhaps the persistence achieved here can enable it to be finally established."
