The Matter Of Antimatter: Answering The Cosmic Riddle Of Existence

June 1 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

$20 - $100

WORLD SCIENCE FESTIVAL 2018

“If I had a world of my own,” said the Mad Hatter, “nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be.” Nonsensical as this may sound, it comes close to describing an interesting paradox: You exist. You shouldn’t. Stars and galaxies and planets exist. They shouldn’t. The nascent universe contained equal parts matter and antimatter that should have instantly obliterated each other, turning the Big Bang into the Big Fizzle. And yet, here we are: flesh, blood, stars, moons, sky. Why? Come join us as we dive deep down the rabbit hole of solving the mystery of the missing antimatter.

Participants: Marcela Carena, Janet Conrad, Michael Doser, Hitoshi Murayama, Neil Turok
