Einstein theory

Einstein was right with his theory about antimatter and gravity

According to recent news and scientific reports, Einstein was right again about how antimatter responds to gravity.

Antimatter is the opposite of ordinary matter, and it is very rare in the natural universe. Scientists have created antimatter in the laboratory and observed its behaviour under controlled conditions.

Antihydrogen Laser Physics Apparatus (ALPHA)

One of the experiments that tested Einstein’s theory of general relativity was the Antihydrogen Laser Physics Apparatus (ALPHA) at CERN in Switzerland.

The researchers used antihydrogen, which is the antimatter counterpart of hydrogen, the lightest element. They showed that antihydrogen falls downward due to gravity, just like ordinary hydrogen. 

This confirms that matter and antimatter react to gravity in a similar way, as predicted by Einstein more than a hundred years ago.

Thank you Albert.
