Default Laser probes antimatter to verify relativity

After decades of effort, physicists have probed the inner working of atoms of antihydrogen—the antimatter version of hydrogen—by measuring for the first time a particular wavelength of light that they absorb. The advance opens the way to precisely comparing hydrogen and antihydrogen and, oddly, testing the special theory of relativity—Albert Einstein’s 111-year-old theory of how space and time appear to observers moving relative to one another, which, among other things, says that nothing can move faster than light.

Default Re: Laser probes antimatter to verify relativity

While good research, this isn't really much news: It behaves exactly like predicted.

So far at least, further research could still bring in some surprises, but i don't think that is very likely. If a difference between hydrogen and anti-hydrogen is found that would be profound and could perhaps shed some light on the matter/anti-matter assymetry observed.
