Technical tour-de-force traps positrons

We don’t often play with them, but plasmas are a central part of modern life. The plasmas that we can create on Earth, however, are unlike some of the plasmas that are thought to exist in space—the ones in space appear to include antimatter. Those plasmas are hard to observe, and as a result, we don’t think we understand them very well.

That makes a pair of recent publications on the trapping of positrons—the positively charged cousin to the electron—very interesting. While they don't get as far as exploring plasmas with antimatter, they do show that we can trap the antimatter long enough to make some.

Plasma: A fluid that is not a fluid

Before we get to the good stuff, we need to trudge through some well-explored fields. A plasma is basically a gas, but the gas consists of ions—atoms that have had one or more electrons removed—and free electrons.

Testing WireGuard with an early-adopter VPN service

Following our earlier WireGuard coverage, commercial VPN provider IVPN's chief marketing officer reached out to me to let me know his company was adding WireGuard support to its offering and asked if I'd be interested in covering the launch. Honestly, I planned to brush him off—there are a million VPN providers out there, and at least 999,000 of them are pretty shady—so I answered with a quick, dirty trick question: what are you doing on the Windows side?

Viktor surprised me with a picture-perfect answer that ruined my plans to get rid of him fast:

The official Ars stance on VPN recommendations is that we can't recommend anyone whose policies we can't independently verify and whose log retention we can't audit ourselves. This sounds like a cop-out from having to make a recommendation, but this is a service that readers will likely be putting a significant amount of trust in, and it would be irresponsible to give a recommendation that important without being able to provide assurances.
