The Universe shouldn't exist

The Universe shouldn't existby

That may well be the best headline we’ve ever written here at One News Page – it is such a bold claim, and yet – the science behind it is incredible. Regular readers will already know that we are fervent followers of science, technology and astronomy – and with more information than ever before lining up at our fingertips with regard to the weird and wonderful universe beyond us, we’re always happy to delve a little into theory and emerging science! The science here, however, is so simple it’s stunning – so let us dissect that title and get to the meat of the matter.

The Universe… shouldn’t exist. That is, according to research completed by CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, who propose that the very nature of existence is a fluke – one which has occurred thanks to an event that goes against all probability. What has emerged is the fact that the universe, as we know it, was born thanks to the collision of matter and anti-matter. This, on paper, is a recipe for an explosion – for complete annihilation – and yet, here we are.

CERN’s website is a fantastic place to start reading up on more information regarding matter collisions – and they propose that the Big Bang should have been responsible for creating equal matter and antimatter. However, what did occur was that more matter came into being than its opposite – and, with both properties being identical in terms of magnetic properties, researchers are more baffled than ever as to just how the universe came into being.

The science here basically proposes that particles and anti-particles meeting almost always – without fail – explode. But, for some reason, the Big Bang didn’t cause such a reaction. Instead, the planets, galaxies and black void around us were created as something of a curious by-product. Don’t worry if this talk is either going over your head or seeming a little scary – it is a truly baffling thought!

Installations such as the pioneering Large Hadron Collider have been set up to help us understand the behavior of matter and anti-matter in greater detail – and the best guess left on the table at this point as to how the universe came into effect relies upon there being miniscule differences in the meeting of matter and anti-matter that started the chain. This, however, doesn’t change the fact that – on paper, and according to science, our existence is nothing short of miraculous. Another reason to be grateful – life is, in the bluntest of terms, an accident!
