  By <a href="">Clara Moskowitz</a> -<br><br>Since the 1930s scientists have been searching for particles that are simultaneously matter and <a href="">antimatter</a>. Now physicists have found strong evidence for one such entity inside a <a href="">superconducting material</a>. The discovery could represent the first so-called Majorana particle, and may help researchers encode information for quantum computers.<br><br><a href="">READ MORE ON SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN</a>
