    Pretty neat story about detection of antimatter by thunderstorms--something that had been predicted many years ago.

    "Scientists using NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope have detected beams of antimatter produced above thunderstorms on Earth, a phenomenon never seen before.

    Scientists think the antimatter particles were formed in a terrestrial gamma-ray flash (TGF), a brief burst produced inside thunderstorms and shown to be associated with lightning. It is estimated that about 500 TGFs occur daily worldwide, but most go undetected.

    "These signals are the first direct evidence that thunderstorms make antimatter particle beams,"
