Ben Is Really Desperate

Antimatter sounds like the stuff of science fiction, and it is. But it's also very real. Antimatter is created and annihilated in stars every day. Here on Earth it's harnessed for medical brain scans. "Antimatter is around us each day, although there isn't very much of it," says Gerald Share of the Naval Research Laboratory. "It is not something that can be found by itself in a jar on a table."So Share went looking for evidence of some in the Sun, a veritable antimatter factory, leading to new results that provide limited fresh insight into these still-mysterious particles. http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/antimatter_sun_030929.html

New experiments are being proposed to test a big unknown in physics: how antimatter reacts to gravity.Physicists have studied antimatter, the mirror version of ordinary matter, for decades. They know, for example, that antiparticles have the same mass as ordinary particles, but opposite charge. But no one knows what effect gravity will have on such particles.Now several groups want to measure exactly how the Earth will pull on antimatter. The tests would create a horizontal beam of the stuff and measure how much gravity deflects it. http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn14120-would-an-antimatter-apple-fall-up.html

But antimatter itself isn't fiction; it actually exists and has been intensively studied by physicists since the 1930s. In a sense, matter and antimatter are the yin and yang of reality: Every type of subatomic particle has its antimatter counterpart. But when matter and antimatter collide, they annihilate each other in an immense burst of energy.

During the Cold War, the Air Force funded numerous scientific studies of the basic physics of antimatter. With the knowledge gained, some Air Force insiders are beginning to think seriously about potential military uses — for example, antimatter bombs small enough to hold in one's hand, and antimatter engines for 24/7 surveillance aircraft. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/c/a/2004/10/04/MNGM393GPK1.DTL

Take a gold sample the size of the head of a push pin, shoot a laser through it, and suddenly more than 100 billion particles of anti-matter appear. The anti-matter, also known as positrons, shoots out of the target in a cone-shaped plasma “jet.”http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/11/081117193019.htm

Antimatter sounds like the kind of thing that you hear about in comic books or cartoons normally as the limitless fuel that we so desperately need, but antimatter is very real. Antimatter is the mirror version of matter. Since antimatter sounds confusing they think it is but it's really not. The definition of matter is plainly stuff or anything that takes up space. anti matter isn't something that gives space or something confusing it's plainly that matter has positive charge and antimatter has a negative. Anti matter or positrons were discovered in the 30s. These two have now been known to call the mirror or the ying and yang of the universe.
Antimatter is in existence everywhere in the universe everything has some thin trace of antimatter in it but some things have larger traces of it in them. Scientists have learned that deep in other galaxies some neutron stars have been getting sucked into black holes and leaving behind anti matter. The antimatter has just currently flouting in giant clouds.
There has also been news that some scientists were able to shoot a special laser at gold and turn it into anti matter. This laser destroys everything but the antimatter leaving the gold useless and the gold is expensive.
However most experts say that if any matter comes into contact with antimatter it will cause an explosion similar to a nuke or bigger some people say that the explosion will be nothing but a bright light and some say that it can destroy everything. Either way mankind is too scared to find out for themselves.

ANTIMATTER

Antimatter sounds like the kind of thing that you hear about in comic books or cartoons as the eco friendly limitless fuel that we so desperately need, but antimatter is very real. Antimatter is the mirror version of matter. Everyone thinks that antimatter is confusing but it's really not that hard to understand. In this paper I will describe what antimatter is were it comes from and what would happen if it touched matter
The definition of matter is plainly stuff, or anything that takes up space. Antimatter is the opposite of matter. The definition of antimatter is matter that puts off an opposite charge. For example, in matter the electrons in Carbon give off a negative charge. In antimatter the electrons give off a positive charge. This is the same with all electrons. Anti matter or positrons were discovered in the 1930. These two have now been known to call the mirror or the ying and yang of the universe.
Antimatter is in existence everywhere in the universe. Everything has some thin traces of antimatter in it but some things have larger traces of it in them such as stars. Scientists have learned that deep in other galaxies some neutron stars have been getting sucked into black holes and leaving behind anti matter. The antimatter is just currently floating in the shape of giant planet sized black and purple clouds that is made of the particals.
There has also been news that some scientists were able to shoot a special laser at a bar of gold and turn it into antimatter. This laser destroys everything but the antimatter leaving the gold useless and the gold is expensive so they can’t afford to do it all the time. “Across the length and breadth of the cosmos, antimatter only turns up in minute quantities in very special circumstances.” (Professor Val Fitch).
However most experts say that if any matter comes into contact with antimatter it will cause an explosion similar to a nuclear bomb or bigger. Some people say that the explosion will be nothing but a bright light and some say that it can destroy everything. Either way mankind is too scared to find out for themselves. And even with the newest technology the smartest scientists are clueless.
