Students of all ages will find this introduction to matter and antimatter both informative and interesting. The text and illustrations make the topic easy to understand. Features include background information, the history of antimatter, reports on experiments using CERN's Antiproton Decelerator (AD), and antimatter in fact and fiction. In the Kid's Corner, young readers will find explanations of matter and antimatter and an art gallery of drawings by students depicting a "collision between matter and antimatter."
