Speaker

Michael Doser (CERN)

Description

We exist, although we shouldn’t. As do stars and galaxies and planets although they also shouldn’t. According to our current understanding of the laws of physics, the universe contained equal parts of matter and antimatter in the first instants that should have instantly obliterated each other - and left the universe filled with nothing but light. And yet, here we are.

This talk presents some of the attempts to solve the mystery of the missing antimatter, as well as about where antimatter can pop up and affect your life.
