Interesting : )
quoted from CERN website.
"Case 1: If an antiparticle is electrically neutral then electric and magnetic fields have no hold on it at all. Therefore, there is no easy way to
contain neutral antimatter particles, i.e. no way to keep them away from the normal-matter walls of the vessel in which they are. They therefore
almost immediately come into contact with normal matter and annihilate.
Case 2: For electrically charged antimatter particles such as positrons (anti-electrons) and anti-protons we know how to use "electromagnetic
bottles" to contain them. However: like charges repel each other. So it is not possible to put a large quantity of anti-protons together because
the repulsive forces between them soon become too strong for the fields that hold them away from the walls. And you cannot put a mixture of positive
anti-electrons and negative anti-protons together, because they will make anti-hydrogen, which is neutral and we are in case 1 again."
I liked this idea, must do more research : P
