A lot of theories (or pseudo theories) are based on anti-gravitation of anti-matter and I am very skeptical on this, I would like to know what scientists in CERN think about this idea and in addition I would like to know when Gbar experiment is expected to give results?

Thanks

CERN has at least three experiments looking at gravity and anti matter (not anti gravity to be precise). They are AeGIS, ALPHA and GBAR, all in the same hall called the Anti Matter Factory. An article you may enjoy is at https://cerncourier.com/does-antimatter-fall-up/ - good reading.

Thanks for your answer so. a lot so scientists expect kind of normal gravity for anti-matter but in fact they do not know. I can't wait to know that.
