atter, if the laws of nature are completely symmetric between matter and antimatter? Well, there are two options: either the Universe was born with more matter than antimatter, or something happened early on, when the Universe was very hot and dense, to create a matter/antimatter asymmetry where there was none initially. While we can’t rule out the first option, we can’t exactly test that one out without literally re-inventing the Universe. But if the second one is true — if we made a matter/antimatter asymmetry where there was none initially — we have a lot of hope for figuring out how that happened.
Why are we made of matter and not antimatter?
