Physicists have simulated how to create antimatter in the lab by firing two lasers at a plastic block   Some of the greatest mysteries in cosmology revolve around antimatter, and it’s hard to study because it’s rare and hard to produce in the lab. Now a team of physicists has outlined a relatively simple new way to create antimatter, by firing two lasers at each other to reproduce the conditions near a neutron star, converting light into matter and antimatter. In principle, antimatter sounds simple – it’s just like regular matter, except its particles have the opposite charge. That basic...
