New research from the ALPHA collaboration at the CERN Antimatter Factory has shown for the first time that antimatter responds to gravity in the same way as matter.

New research from the ALPHA collaboration at the CERN Antimatter Factory has shown for the first time that antimatter responds to gravity in the same way as matter.

Antimatter particles are identical to the matter particles which make up the physical world, but with the opposite electrical charge. The paper, published in the journal Nature, shows that, within the precision of the experiment, atoms of antihydrogen fall to Earth in the same way as their matter equivalents.
