Thanks to external funding, antimater research at CERN will continue. CERN's antiproton complex, which in the fall of 1995 was the first to produce antihydrogen, was closed at the end of last year to free up money for the Large Hadron Collider. Now, however, one part of this complex, the antiproton collector, is to be upgraded and rechristened the “antiproton decelerator,” scheduled to begin operating in early 1999.
