Several leading physicist have speculated on the existence of gravitons and have even made up some rules that they might follow. They also discussed antigravitons. Antigravitons do repell matter (providing they do exist) in a manner opposite of gravitons attracting matter. Antimatter is something of a misnomer, however: an anti-proton, for example, could interact with most types of "normal" matter, it is just with "normal" protons that they obliterate eachother. (It is very difficult, though, to get anti-protons or any other type of anti-matter to interact with matter other than what it is opposite of, though) You may want to check me on this at but I think believe that I'm right.

: I've heard people mention gravitons which are particles that act as the force gravity.

: So my question is assuming there are gravitons would there be antigravitons which would have the same affect on antimatter as gravitons do on regular matter?
