Scientists at Brookhaven National Laboratory studied the attractive force between antiprotons, giving physicists new ways to look at the forces that bind matter and antimatter. Credit: Brookhaven National Laboratory What’s the difference between matter and antimatter? Sometimes nothing, a new study finds. Scientists at Brookhaven National Laboratory’s Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider […]
