The Alpha spectrometer on the international space station and cosmological implications.
A giant magnet attached to the International Space Station is being used to look for antimatter particles in the cosmic rays that come from outside our galaxy. Some theories suggest that these could come from antimatter galaxies or exotic cosmological process. This lecture looks what these signals from space have told us about fundamental symmetries in physics.
