    No don't say because I'm holding it I will explode. If antimatter was released will it go up or down?

    Dropping would make anyone assume the object would fall.

    Well... someone told me that yes it should drop. The only difference between matter and antimatter is the charges but they still react to gravity.

    However... I just listened to this Science Friday podcast and I guess it is still in question

    Depends on the gravity where it's dropped.

    Dropped infers failing. If it rises, have you really "dropped" something?

    That's like falling up stairs.:wtf:

    Well, my balls are huge and have a fairly large pull so I was just being thorough.

    i doubt you would have to worry about dropping it. if you were holding it such that you could potentially drop it, you probably wouldn't have to worry about anything ever again.

    if 'released' it will not drop or rise. it will merely flash, and wake up people within the surrounding 200 or so miles. well those within the first 100 miles probably won't wake up at all.
