CERN researchers manage to isolate antimatter for 16 minutes

Scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research say they made a leap in the study of antimatter -- matter's elusive alter ego -- by trapping 300 antihydrogen atoms for 1,000 seconds, which gave them time to analyze the particles. The breakthrough, which comes a year after the team first managed to create and isolate antimatter, could enable physicists to solve some of the universe's mysteries, such as why nature favored matter over antimatter.
