Event description

Description

Join Markham Public Library and York University as we bring to Markham a taste of the university experience. Each month YorkU faculty will bring their amazing research and provide an opportunity for our community to learn something new.

TALK DESCRIPTION:

The strength and sign of the gravitational interaction between matter and antimatter (so-called "antigravity") is still an open experimental question. I will discuss some arguments and measurements which shed light on the issue. Finally I will describe planned antigravity experiments involving antihydrogen with an emphasis on the ALPHA experiment at the CERN Laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland.
