Slow antihydrogen is now produced by two different production methods. In Method I, large numbers of H atoms are produced during positron‐cooling of antiprotons within a nested Penning trap (Fig. 1). In a just‐demonstrated Method II, lasers control the production of antihydrogen atoms via charge exchange collisions. Field ionization detection makes it possible to probe the internal structure of the antihydrogen atoms being produced — most recently revealing atoms that are too tightly bound to be well described by the guiding center atom approximation. The speed of antihydrogen atoms has recently been measured for the first time. After the requested overview, the recent developments are surveyed.
