CERN Courier: December 2016
The ELENA facility will increase the number of available antiprotons for experiments for precision matter–antimatter comparisons.
Numerous experiments, many of them at CERN, are testing for violations of Lorentz and CPT symmetry in the search for new physics.
Five years of data from the AMS experiment on board the International Space Station reveal intriguing features.
The latest cosmic-ray data from AMS have implications for particle-physics models of dark matter and other novel phenomena.
