At his house in the woods of western New Jersey, the civil engineer turned green energy evangelist uses fuel cells to convert the power generated by about 150 solar panels so that it can be stored in 11 hydrogen tanks about 100 yards from the house. For eight or nine months of the year, the photovoltaic cells mounted on Strizki's workshop roof and scattered around his yard generate more than enough electricity for a full range of domestic appliances including energy-guzzlers like a hot tub and a big-screen TV in his white-sided suburban home.

The find, described in Astrophysical Journal Letters , confirms theoretical work that predicted the Earth's magnetic field could trap antimatter.
