    Does anyone know anything about antimatter? Things beyond really basic general knowledge would help. May I interview you for a school assignment?

    The words you chose make this unclear.

    The point is that a particle moving forward in time is indistinguishable from its antiparticle traveling backward in time. This does not mean, however, that something is actually going back in time. It's just how we represent it with our models.

    An electron moving forward in time is indistinguishable from a positron moving backward in time... All properties are the same except the time arrow. Same with photons / anti-photons and all others.


    To the OP, I'd love to help you out, but I'm not trained in this material, I just read it for fun.

    Iמ general its time going backward for sevral of prticals , maybe its not going back exsactly but its going backward . thanks

    It supposedly deletes matter as we know it if contact is made. If im not wrong it cannot be contained either meaning u wont be able to touch it with your bare hands if it was present, i forgot the explanation on why we can't touch it

    We can't touch it because we're made of matter. And it doesn't simply delete it, they both become pure energy (in the form of photons mostly IIRC). It can be contained by non-material means (such as electromagnetic fields).

    And i supose that gravity affects it in the same way as "normal" matter

    because it reverse in time , matter and antimatter , in its gravity it shuld reject

    All 'quantum numbers' are reversed, such as charge, spin,etc. for anti-matter.
    Gravity has no quantum numbers associated with it at low energy, only at greater than planck energy, so it will act exactly the same as regular matter.
