Antimatter

Around us we see matter in all sorts of shapes. But there is also antimatter.

 


Explanation

Nature was created during the Big Bang, and the same type of process still takes place. In atomic test installations, such as at CERN in Geneva, this is accurately examined. In vacuum fluctuations, out of 'nothing' both matter and antimatter are created, but that also disappears together again real soon.

This means, however, that from nothing (what we call 0) something (let's call that 1) may arise.

 


Additional information

In 1928 the British quantum physicist Paul Dirac deduced the existence of antimatter.
