DailyDirt: If I Could Catch Time In A Bottle...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The scientific method relies on independent verification of measurements and results, but sometimes it's not easy to replicate experiments or measure things at the leading edge of science. Scam artists are often identified when they explain that their results are so far advanced that no one else can replicate them. Real scientists, though, don't buy that. Here are a few scientific discoveries that still need a bit more verification. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Re:

    except they are talking about what it would do under the influence of GRAVITY.. not a magnetic field.

    and of course gravity affects anti-matter just like affects normal matter.

    ie it would be influenced by gravity the same way as 'normal' hydrogen does.

    Hydrogen also does not 'rise' by itself, it rises because in air it is less dense, it therefore floats. (lighter than air).

    considering I would expect there to be little or no air mixed with the anti-matter H+, that it would be attracted by the gravity of the earth, and would tend to fall, just as normal hydrogen would fall, when not suspended in air.

    what level of science education do they have in the US ?

    no wonder your country is going to shit!
