The strength and sign of the gravitational interaction between matter and antimatter (so-called "antigravity") is still an open experimental question. I will discuss some arguments and measurements which shed light on the issue. Finally, I will describe planned antigravity experiments involving antihydrogen with an emphasis on the ALPHA experiment at CERN.

Join us for an evening of Light at THEMUSEUM!
This is your opportunity to see the"Light Illuminated" exhibit put together by several of our Waterloo graduate students, and to hear a lecture from Prof. Melanie Campbell.
Director, Data Science & Analytics, Scotiabank
I'll talk about cosmological structure, the stuff that holds the visible universe of stars and galaxies together - what we know about it, and how we think it works.
We will describe how the motions of atoms and molecules can be understood and even predicted based on quantum mechanical laws. Examples such as the behaviour of confined molecules and nano-scale superfluid will be used to illustrate some essential concepts. We will also present computational algorithms along with software tools used in the simulation of the quantum dynamics of molecular motion.
LIGHT Illuminated celebrates the United Nation's International Year of Light. In this interactive exhibition at THEMUSEUM you can learn about the value and importance of light-based technologies by exploring a black-light room, playing with colour mixing stations, and trying to get through a laser maze.
