the standard model says antimatter acts the same way normal matter does WRT gravity. They want to check but no one seriously expects it to fall up. they just want to do basic science on the question. We also haz no neutrino devices other than humongous indirect detectors. for there to be neutrino based tech would require some sort of material that could directly interact and yet be portable or semi portable. for example non baryonic matter made without protons and neutrons of extreme density.
any time anomalies would arise from either wormhole shenanigans or even more remotely arising from the relativistic motion of the particles. and none of that is likely to happen at a mesoscopic or macroscopic level. that does not mean they can't be looking for something like that. but it would be at a fundamental level and not the sort of thing you can step through. It's utility would be in verifying discarding or elaborating on theory. it might also point to some future utility.
You need a new parish then.

The real purpose behind CERN is the harvesting of anti-protons for development of fourth generation nuclear weapons at Lawrence Livermore Laboratory at Los Alamos. Anti-protons are slowed down at CERN on a smaller ring until they can be cryogenically stored in magnetic confinement bottles for transport to the United States.
European taxpayers are footing the bill for this nuclear weapons project under the guise of peaceful research. The real project is a covert joint venture by Rand Corporation and the USAF.

Well, that's what a photon torpedo is -- a matter/antimatter reaction.
According to the TNG Technical Manual, photon torpedoes use 1.5 kg of matter and 1.5 kg of antimatter

A man named Dirk Finkemeier from Espelkamp uncovered evidence from the Library of congress that the uranium bomb dropped on Hiroshima was actually manufactured in Germany and captured by US forces near Goslar in April '45.
Are you implying that although we were experimenting with nukes at that time, that the Germans already had them? Not unbelievable by any means.. just look at the minds behind the Manhattan project.
Like i said. found a new hobby!
I think you need to research FAT MAN and Thin Man.
Thin Man was a failed attempt to develop a gun barrel style Plutonium weapon. It was (and always will be) defeated by the presence of Pu240 contamination, which caused pre-detonation problems.
By the time they realised in April 1945 that they could not develop a Plutonium gun barrel device, there was a panic that not enough Highly Enriched Uranium (HEU) could be produced at Oak Ridge. The official history fudges the issue of how they obtained enough HEU for the Hiroshima bomb.
In fact the Germans had an enormously efficient ultracentrifuge project way more advanced than the manhattan project. It was so advanced in fact that when they captured Espelkamp near Hannover and found an underground Uranium Enrichment plant there with a working nuclear reactor, the British clandestinely kept it in operation until 1948. Nazi scientists interned at Farm Hall including Heisenberg himself were kept at Aswelde just a short distance from Espelkamp. Britains refusal to close the Espelkamp facility led to USA expelling the UK from the Manhattan Project in 1947.
Incidentally none other than James Bond author Ian Flemming was involved in the capture of Espelkamp with his special forces unit 30AU Commando. SS Lt General Dr Hans Kammler was captured at Espelkamp along with a retinue of his personal staff plus five staff cars. Fleming used this opportunity for a daring raid deep into Germany with Kammler as his willing hostage to gather nuclear intelligence. Kammler was already authorised by Hitler to round up and arrest all the nuclear scientists to prevent capture by the Soviets and Fleming used this to his own advantage. Kammler was promised his freedom after the war for co-operation, however upon their return, Fleming drowned Kammler in a vat of water at Espelkamp where his body was later discovered by British troops about 5th May 1945. All of these events of course remain classified.
