What is anti matter and why is it important?



  1. 0 Votes

    Antimatter is exactly as its name implies–the negative version of matter. If antimatter encounters regular matter, they annihilate each other in a reaction which produces a large amount of energy that is several orders of magnitude larger than anything that can be achieved by regular matter interaction. Scientists bill antimatter as a possible source of energy, although issues with containment and production currently keep it from being harnessed effectively. Antimatter also has uses in medicine, particularly in positron emission tomography, which uses antielectrons to scan a person’s body.
