10 THINGS CONNECTED TO ANTIMATTER THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

According to standard model, physics theory that describes the basic building elements and forces of nature, antimatter is a substance comprised of elementary anti-particles, unlike “ordinary” matter that is comprised of elementary particles.

The existence of anti-particles and antimatter was first postulated by English scientist Paul Dirac. At the end of twentieth century of the last century in CERN, anti-hydrogen-first anti-atom was synthesized. With regular hydrogen around the proton that represents an atom core only one electron circles around it. In the case of anti-hydrogen around the antiproton circles only one anti-electron.  In a way that with combining of particles a matter is created, the antimatter is created with combination with appropriate anti-particles. About this and other facts tied to antimatter, learn in the following 10 points.

10FACT No 10


The Big Bang should have produced equal amounts of matter and antimatter yet there is a lack of antimatter in the universe. This imbalance remains a mystery.

09FACT No 9

The existence of antimatter was first asserted in 1928 by Paul Dirac. He was proved right on 1932, when Carl Anderson discovered positrons.

08FACT No 8

Anti -hydrogen atoms were first made at CERN in 1995 with millions more being produced in 2002. However, it would take billions of years to make enough to fill a balloon.

07FACT No 7

Low – level electron – positron annihilations are used in medicine. Pet scans use these collisions to produce images of activity inside living tissue.

06FACT No 6

Producing antimatter is very inefficient and requires more energy to make then is returned. Currently only 0.0000000001 at the invested energy is given back.

05FACT No 5

It is theoretically possible for antimatter galaxies to exist. Relics from the Big Bang, they would have to be isolated from away from matter galaxies.

04FACT No 4

If all the antimatter ever made at CERN was annihilated with matter it would only produce enough energy to power a single light bulb for few minutes.

03FACT No 3

The sun creates antimatter every day with vat amounts found in solar flares. A flare in 2002 produced enough antimatter to power the whole of the US for two days, hypothetically.

02FACT No 2

It would cost one hundred billion dollars to create one milligram of antimatter. A gram could produce twice much energy as the bomb dropped on Hiroshima.

01FACT No 1

NASA is currently working on an antimatter powered spacecraft. It successful, the technology could allow astronauts to reach Mars in 180 days.
