The Mystery of the Missing Antimatter

The Mystery of the Missing Antimatter

In the first fractions of a second after the Big Bang lingers a question at the heart of our very existence: why does the universe contain matter but almost no antimatter?

    A great book for the hardcore non-physicist that explores both historical and recent research into cosmology and particle physics. If you have gotten behind in what?s new in physics, you will learn about the experiments that confirmed that neutrinos do have mass, that one candidate f...
