Will it ever be possible to create Matter from a large source of energy ?

  1. Feb 19, 2010 #1
    Will it ever be possible to create matter from a large source of energy similar to that that caused the big bang despite that theory still being debated, or can matter be created from nothing lets say we had a machine of some sort.

    Thanks for time in advance

    Search Google for "The Large Hadron Collider".

    To elaborate the post above...

    The creation of matter happens all the time when particle accelerators change energy into sub-atomic particles, when they collide electrons and positrons some of the energy goes into creating new particles. BUT, it's worth mentioning that these can not be made into atoms or molecules etc, which is what we class as matter.

    Par production is a well experimentally defined phenomena.

    Best Regards
