10-year plan to bottle anti-matter


GENEVA - Scientists plan to go boldly forward and bottle anti matter, the fuel that powers TV's starship Enterprise and potentially the most destructive material in the universe. Physicists in Geneva have already succeeded in making the first atoms of anti matter seen on Earth.

The antihydrogen produced at CERN, the European Centre for Particle Physics, only exists for a split second - too short a time to be of any practical use.

The scientists are embarking on a 10 year mission to trap and store anti matter in a magnetic bottle.
