### CERN captures 38 anti-hydrogen atoms

As you may learn from The Telegraph and others, physicists at CERN managed to trap 38 anti-hydrogen anti-atoms and keep them for 1/6 of a second.

If they add 10^{28} anti-atoms and if they arrange them a properly, they could create an artificial anti-Semite or an antelope (it's speed "antilopa" in Czech).

There is nothing beneath the linebreak.

Just to be sure, don't forget that antimatter's gravity is attractive just like for ordinary matter! ;-)
