Physicists discover dramatic difference in behavior of matter versus antimatter
The BaBar experiment at SLAC, a DOE laboratory operated by Stanford, submitted exciting new results demonstrating a dramatic difference in the behavior of matter and antimatter to Physical Review Letters. SLAC's PEP-II accelerator collides electrons and positrons to produce an abundance of B and anti-B mesons. BaBar experimenters discovered striking matter-antimatter asymmetry by a phenomenon known as direct charge parity (CP) violation.

Nature can reset the clock in certain types of cancer and reverse many of the elements responsible for causing malignancy, reports a research team led by Whitehead Institute Member Rudolf Jaenisch, in collaboration with Lynda Chin from Dana Farber Cancer Institute. The team demonstrated this by successfully cloning mice from an advanced melanoma cell.
