New Strange Antimatter Found


Amazing that we are still finding new particles.  Meet the antihypertriton..

“Physicists working in the STAR collaboration at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at the Brookhaven Laboratory in the US have detected antimatter nuclei containing strange quarks for the first time. The antihypertriton – consisting of an antiproton, an antineutron and an antilambda particle – is the heaviest antinucleus yet produced and opens up a new realm of strange antinucluei. It could also shed light on a number of problems in astrophysics and cosmology, including the dominance of matter over antimatter in the universe.”Extending the nuclear terrain http://physicsworld.com/cws/article/news/41917
