+ - CERN creates, captures antimatter for 1000 seconds->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "By cooling the antiprotons down to -70 degrees C and the positrons down to -230 degrees C, the team managed to coax the two antiparticles together to form antihydrogen. The researchers then turned down the temperature again to -272 degrees C, cold enough to rob the antihydrogen atoms of enough energy that they could be trapped in a strong electromagnetic field, generated by superconducting magnets."
