Just a few minutes ago, I received a message from Pandora that it was “conducting maintenance”.  This made me think about how much I expected Pandora to be there with music while I’m working.  This led me to try out iTunes Radio, which so far has been quite good.

Physicists at CERN have recently combined positrons and anti-protons to create a microscopic amount of anti-hydrogen. Positrons are already in use in PET scanners that scan for problems within the body. Antiparticles and antimatter are similar to matter except that all properties are reversed. When antimatter and matter combine, they neutralize. This means there are no more inner forces holding them together. The result is an explosion powerful enough to create black holes.  To read more about this, click here.
