Antimatter Belt Discovered Around Earth

An antiproton belt has been discovered by the Payload for Antimatter Exploration and Light-nuclei Astrophysics, or Pamela for short. Pamela is a satellite designed specifically to search for cosmic rays. This could lead to research developing a new propulsion system for spacecraft. Warp 10, Mr. Crusherآ….make it so. big grin

The band is "the most abundant source of antiprotons near the Earth", said Alessandro Bruno of the University of Bari, a co-author of the work.
