Scientists have succeeded in trapping 38 antimatter atoms in place for a fraction of a second.
The research is being conducted at the home of the Large Hadron Collider and is the first time antimatter has been held in place as usually it is destroyed as soon as it comes in to contact with normal matter.
"Antimatter atoms have been trapped for the first time, scientists say."
