If the universe was born from nothing then what are the possible reasons that we don’t see the same amount of matter and antimatter now?(if it’s a scientifically correct question)
It is unclear if that is a useful description.Pouya Pourkarim said:If the universe was born from nothing
There is tons of literature about it. What did you read so far?Pouya Pourkarim said:then what are the possible reasons that we don’t see the same amount of matter and antimatter now?
As mfb already pointed out, it was not. Saying that it was is a widespread version in all pop-science presentations. The actual current model of Cosmology, the Big Bang Theory, is silent about any creation event. That is, we have a verifiable theory of what the universe was like at a point in the past and how it evolved to what it is today but we do not know what was going on previous to that point in time (and that point in time is NOT a creation event, it's a time when the universe was an incredibly dense, incredibly hot, plasma of unknown (possibly infinite) extentPouya Pourkarim said:If the universe was born from nothing ...
The origin of antimatter in the universe is still a mystery. It is believed that equal amounts of matter and antimatter were created during the Big Bang, but somehow most of the antimatter disappeared, leaving behind the matter that makes up our world.
Scientists can detect the presence of antimatter by observing the particles it creates when it comes into contact with matter. Through various experiments and observations, it has been determined that there is a significant imbalance between matter and antimatter in the universe.
There are various theories about what happened to the missing antimatter, but the most widely accepted one is that it was annihilated with matter shortly after the Big Bang. This process of annihilation produces energy, which can be observed in the form of cosmic rays.
Yes, scientists have been able to create antimatter in particle accelerators, but in very small amounts. It is a challenging and expensive process, as antimatter is highly unstable and difficult to contain. It is also quickly annihilated when it comes into contact with matter.
It is unlikely that the missing antimatter will have a significant impact on the fate of the universe. The remaining matter is enough to continue the expansion of the universe, and the small amounts of antimatter that are still present do not pose a threat. However, further research on the nature of antimatter could provide valuable insights into the fundamental laws of the universe.
