CERN PRODUCES THE RAREST SUBSTANCE IN THE WORLD: ANTIMATTER
In the earliest moments of the Universe, matter and antimatter were created in equal amounts. But, in the observable Universe we only find matter. What happened to antimatter is one of the greatest unsolved mysteries. By pushing the limits of intensity and energy, future particle colliders could shed light on this enigma. Important technological advances are being made and implemented within the framework of CERN projects to build such an infrastructure.
