      In 1928 the physicist Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac found a relativistic quantum-mechanical equation of motion for electrons, the so-called Dirac-Equation. This equation also contains solutions for a particle with the opposite electrical charge of an electron. After some confusion about the meaning of these extra solutions, in 1931, Dirac interpreted them as the not-yet found anti-particle to the electron, the positron. It was first observed in an experiment in 1932, which proved Dirac's interpretation right.
