With four antinucleons, antihelium-4 is produced at a rate a thousand times lower yet.

I'm surprised it's only 1,000 times lower than a three baryon nucleus.

18 Atoms? We need 18 Packages and an outdoor venue. This is going to be the best music festival ever.

20 would've made it possession with intent to sell?

Nice one, subby.

Sulfur Hexaflouride?

Though that's not an atom.

...while exploding!

OK, a tiny explosion but still...

Where's my anti-helium balloons?

Okay, I found the picture, but I have no idea where I was going with this.

/got nothing.

I laughed pretty damn hard at that.

+1, subs!

Is nobody else worried that there is a STAR lab in operation?!

Your link is borked, try this one: Adam from Myth Busters on He and SF6

thanks.

im sure if one just types "laughing baby at half speed" they'll get some working video eventually.

Now that's how you put together a headline!

Is anti-helium like antipasto?

MrEricSir: Where's my anti-helium balloons?


At the bottom of a well where they belong.

Since anti-particles don't bounce off of normal particles, they would be well into the knudsen flow regime, meaning that the speed of sound is effectively infinite and "pressure" is a more or less meaningless concept in this context, can't maintain a pressure wave resonance in a volume the size of a human respiratory system... so, no sound or sonic effects.

So, nope, not relevant.

//In my defense, you got pedantic first by posting the link.

Should go down like a lead balloon?

Well played Subby, well played.

I cannot wait until they discover Mony-51.

10 grams. We need just ten grams.

No Morbo picture? I'm disappointed.

I gave my kid a balloon full of antihelium. He cried as he dragged it behind him.

That depends on your definition of pasto.

I know there's talk about different sciencey things going on in this thread, but since I don't really know anything about the subject matter at hand, I'm just gonna go and say...Ice 9.

Well, that does seem to be the standard fallback soundbite for people who don't know anything about science. But I think you broke the tradition by actually admitting it and there may be terrible consequences for that.....TERRIBLE CONSEQUENCES!

It's only a matter of time before someone claims cold diffusion.

Ok, now can we have warp drive?

davidhyde: Is anti-helium like antipasto?


When pasto and antipasto meet, do they annihilate with perfect efficiency?

This headline reads just like a bad SNL weekend update joke.

A popular but incorrect assumption, caused by the common confusion of terminal vowels: it's actually pasta, so when they combine only the PAST components react. That's why there's an excess of terminal A's and O's in Italy, while what past you can find is mostly in the form of ruins.

Who are you who are so wise in the ways of science?
