Many Americans who overindulged on Thanksgiving may be thinking a bit of antimatter might not be a bad idea right about now. Well, you don’t really want to run into the stuff — we mean, the anti-stuff.

But an international group of scientists working at CERN, the particle lab near Geneva, Switzerland, has, more or less, done exactly that. They have capped five years of work by containing, for the first time, a few atoms of antimatter, as described in a light-hearted editorial footnote from The Worcester Telegram & Gazette Corp.
