Antimatter containment. Photomontage showing how a future containment system for antimatter might work. Powerful magnetic fields contain the short-lived antimatter (centre), which has been artificially produced in a laboratory. Antimatter has the opposite properties to ordinary matter, with anti-particles produced in particle accelerators. When antimatter meets matter, mutual annihilation occurs.
