Markham Public Library and York University invite you to the York University Scholars' Hub in Markham.

At this session, Dr. Scott Menary, a York University Professor in physics and astronomy, will deliver his talk titled Antigravity: Would an anti-apple fall up? 

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