An Antimatter Breakthrough
From Liz Mermin's documentary in progress: "On 7 March, the journal Nature published the latest results from the ALPHA experiment at CERN. The findings were called "historic." ALPHA first made science history in 2010, when they created atoms of anti-hydrogen; in 2011 they succeeded in trapping and holding these atoms for an astonishing 1000 seconds. In these three short films, members of the ALPHA collaboration explain their latest triumph, revealing the excitement behind this extroardinary scientific process."
