University of Michigan Activates Antimatter 'Gun'

How would you like to have a table-top sized ‘gun’ capable of firing anti-particle positrons that mimic the jet streams emitted from black holes? You could be the hit of the next neighborhood block party. As an anti-matter-of-fact, you could probably wipe out the entire block. Don’t rush out to buy one, it’s not quite ready for your local Radio Shack just yet. big grin

The researchers report that each blast of their gun lasts just 30 femtoseconds, but each firing results in the production of quadrillions of positrons—a density level comparable to those produced at CERN.
