This is where things get weird


From NEW SCIENTIST:

Antihydrogen trapped at long last

"ATOMS made of antimatter have been trapped for the first time, a feat that will allow us to test whether antimatter responds to the fundamental forces in the same way as regular matter.

Antiparticles are the oppositely charged twins of normal particles. Since matter and antimatter annihilate on contact, antimatter experiments have been limited to using charged antiparticles, which can be corralled within electromagnetic traps."

AND
"If the spectrum of antihydrogen does not match that of ordinary hydrogen, it would leave the standard model in disarray. But any discrepancies could shed light on the long-standing mystery of why the universe is dominated by matter when the big bang should have created equal amounts of matter and antimatter, Gabrielse says."



Big things are afoot in theoretical physics... read the entire article HERE!

A Challenge

Ned and Jared and Joe and I have been talking about how successfully the Comix Connection Holiday Food Drive 2010 (1 FREE COMIC + 1 entry into a Shopping Spree Giveaway for each food item donated, click HERE for full details) has been going so far... you've all donated so much stuff that the donation barrels and boxes are overflowing as of Friday, November 26th:

--From Comix Connection - York, benefits the York Rescue Mission


--From Comix Connection - Mechanicsburg, benefits the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank

So may of you have donated SO MUCH, and for that we thank you!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

So, here's the challenge:

That looks like several hundred pounds of food donated in just a few short days, right? And we're gathering food until the end of the year, right?

Can we collect... ONE TON OF FOOD by January 1st?

Can all of you donate 2000 pounds of grub by 2011?

I THINK YOU CAN!

And if you do, COMIX CONNECTION WILL ADD MORE PRIZES TO THE GIVEAWAY!

How's that sound?
