The Alpha-g experiment at CERN in Geneva.

Particle physicist Ivo van Vulpen of Nikhef comments in the Volkskrant (in Dutch) on measurements at CERN of falling antimatter. He talked to BNR Nieuwsradio Wetenschap Vandaag later the same day. The Alpha-g experiment has shown that antimatter and matter behaveĀ  exactly the same in a gravitational field. This is not unexpected, but the measurement proves it for the first time. CERN itself made a short explainer video. On Friday, there will be a Nikhef colloquium on this new result.
