The Relationship between Antigravity and Antimatter

If subatomic particles are warpages of space at the Planck scale, as M theory suggests, then the fact that both matter and antimatter exist could well be related to the fact that both gravity and antigravity apparently do. The question then arises: Do matter and antimatter have opposite gravitational charge? If so, antimatter should be gravitationally repulsive.

Keywords: antigravity, antimatter, cosmological constant, matter, quantum gravity
