Matter vs Antimatter: How did we survive the big bang?
Nuclear and Particle Physics, Astrophysics, and Cosmology
Los Alamos National Laboratory
Every fundamental particle in nature has a corresponding antiparticle:when the two meet, they annihilate into a burst of radiation. Particles and antiparticles were produced in equal numbers in the aftermath of the big bang: so, as the primordial soup cooled, they should have completely destroyed each other, leaving behind a universe with no matter. Instead, an imbalance of matter over antimatter developed, eventually leading to galaxies and stars and planets and ... us! How did this asymmetry arise? Can the known laws of physics explain it? What can subatomic physics experiments teach us? Come and find out!
