The universe shouldn't exist, according to top CERN scientists, raise doubt on Big Bang theory
New Delhi : The CERN scientists have accepted that it is beyond their efforts to explain why the universe even exists. "The universe should not actually exist," said Christian Smorra, a physicist at CERN’s Baryon–Antibaryon Symmetry Experiment (BASE) collaboration.
In a latest research, CERN scientists found that antiprotons comes with a symmetry in nature which is literally not possible.
The findings from the BASE (Baryon Antibaryon Symmetry Experiment) are published in the journal Nature. The scientists have also raised concern over the belief that first matter in the universe was formed after the much famous Big Bang Theory.
Scientists explained: "Particles and antiparticles annihilate one another when they come into contact, if there were exactly equal measures of both, the universe wouldn’t exist—at least not in the form we see it today."
"All of our observations find a complete symmetry between matter and antimatter, which is why the universe should not actually exist," first author Christian Smorra, from Japan’s RIKEN institute, said in a statement.
After finding no asymmetry between particles and antiparticles, the researchers will now work to develop even higher-precision measurements of protons and antiprotons to improve on the latest findings. "An asymmetry must exist here somewhere but we simply do not understand where the difference is. What is the source of the symmetry break?" Smorra said.
