Title: Theoretical motivation for gravitation experiments on ultra-low energy antiprotons and antihydrogen
Author: Nieto, Michael; Goldman, T.; Anderson, John; Lau, Eunice; Perez-Mercader, J.
Abstract: We know that the generally accepted theories of gravity and quantum mechanics are fundamentally incompatible. Thus, when we try to combine these theories, we must beware of physical pitfalls. Modern theories of quantum gravity are trying to overcome these problems. Any ideas must confront the present agreement with general relativity, but yet be free to wonder about not understood phenomena, such as the dark matter problem and the anomalous spacecraft data which we announce here. This all has led some "intrepid" theorists to consider a new gravitational regime, that of antimatter. Even more "daring" experimentalists are attempting, or considering attempting, the measurement of the gravitational force on antimatter, including low-energy antiprotons and, perhaps most enticing, antihydrogen.
