Why There Is More Matter Than Antimatter

Why There Is More Matter Than Antimatter | Particle Physics | Scoop.it
Matter annihilates antimatter, mostly resulting in light (no, not “pure energy”, whatever that is supposed to be). Matter and antimatter can also come into existence together via a process that is the reverse of annihilation.

eufisica: The Standard Model of Particle Physics | Particle Physics | Scoop.it
Still, the Standard Model falls short of being a complete theory of fundamental interactions because it does not incorporate the physics of dark energy nor of the full theory of gravitation as described by general relativity.
