Scientists on Verge of Understanding Why Our Universe Exists
Scientists currently believe they have taken the first steps into ultimately understanding the mystery that has plaguing mankind since the dawn of time, “Why does the universe exists”.
During the birth of the universe, both matter and antimatter were created and they both destroy each other when they meet.
So, the question is, why is there enough matter left over to form all the stars, galaxies, and planets?
However, we’re at the dawn of a new age and it’s being reported that scientists are now making substantial progress towards finally having an answer to this question.
Their theory is called, Leptogenesis, the proposition is that at the time of the Big Bang there massive amounts of subatomic particles that were spewed out called neutrinos.
When these neutrinos finally broke apart, their theory suggests that they just so happened to form more matter as a byproducts than antimatter ones.
These new findings were made in Japan’s Tokai to Kamioka (T2K) experiment, which were then published just last week inside of the journal called Nature.
However, these finding aren’t definitive evidence that prove the leptogenesis theory, but depending on how many follow up-experiments and the mount of analyses that will actually be necessary to make the declaration.
SciAm is reporting that these findings are strongly suggesting that the leptogenesis may be on to something.
This study suggests that there is a 95% probability that these neutrinos will break down into uneven proportions of antimatter and matter, which is a measurement called CP violation.
It definitely sounds convincing, but it’s not going to be good enough to solve the mystery of the universe…yet.
“We don’t call it a discovery yet,” says Chang Kee who is a University researcher T2K team member.
