On the website of Cornell University (USA) by a group of astrophysicists, it was reported about discovery of the belt of antiprotons around the Earth. The existence of such a zone was previously predicted theoretically, as charged particles, including antiprotons, should be captured in Earth's magnetic field, being in a sort of "magnetic confinement", which does not allow an antiproton annihilate with ordinary matter. This discovery was made by means of orbital detectors of positrons and antiprotons PAMELA (Payload for Antimatter matter Exploration and Light-nuclei Astrophysics) by passing through the South Atlantic anomaly, where radiation fields are located closest to the Earth's surface. However, the number of detected antiprotons were small - only 28 antiprotons were detected, it can not approve the existence of stable antimatter belt around the Earth.
