What is Antimatter?
Antimatter is a material formed of antiparticles. Antimatter has the same mass as ordinary particles only with an opposite charge and quantum spin. These particles bind in the same manner as normal particles do. Mixing matter and antimatter can and most likely will result in complete annihilation of anti-particles and particles. Antimatter and matter when combined can make several combinations such as high energy photons(Gamma Rays) and other particle-antiparticle pairs.
How is Antimatter used?
CERN has found many ways to use Antimatter in real life. One of the most prominent battles we fight today is how to get rid off cancer. Well, Antimatter may have our answer. Chemo therapy and protons may be effective but they have nothing on Antimatter.
