What is Antimatter -- really? I've been trying to get a grasp of what they ideal of antimatter is exactly. I do understand that it's the 'opposite' of 'matter'. Electronics, Neutrons, Protons, all have an 'opposite', and I've seen where the folks over at CERN have been smashing atoms together to get an exploding result hopefully creating antimatter. I understand that when one touches the other, they annhiallate. But what confuses me is...if it's about their charge then, and please excuse me if this thought is just stupid, I'm flying by the seat of my pants on this one...wouldn't there be a way to just 'flip' the charge? I even feel my last statement isn't exactly up to par, but that's why I'm asking the question...what is antimatter?
