Potentially awesome discovery for the Big Bang theory

    The idea of the big bang is basically that you have this ball of nearly infinite energy. Having energy condensed that much, it is possible for energy to phase from energy to matter. However, when this happens, there are always 2 particles created: 1 matter and 1 antimatter. The matter/antimatter pair can either collide(turning back into pure energy) or decay into other matter/energy.

    Researchers have discovered a type of meson where the pairs don't decay at the same rate. This could explain the Big Bang theory. The problem was, there should always have been 1 anti-matter for every matter, so there would never be a chance for a universe like ours which is all matter. If this is verified, this small difference could explain how there came to be more matter particles than anti-matter particles.

      So the odds were that we really shouldn't have mattered at all?

        I just got lucky, it was a side-story when I was checking on updates for FTL neutrinos.
