The Big Bang and the LHC


May 20, 2010
Just recently the Large Hadron Collider [world's highest-energy particle accelerator located in Switzerland; source] after having been used multiple times now in experiments for observation, produced a new discovery.

In short, the LHC is supposed to test how the big bang happened, but according to quantum mechanics and relativity, always seemed impossible because it was theorized mathematically an equal amount of matter and antimatter would have been produced rendering existence impossible to develop. But it has now been observed that 1% more matter is always produced than antimatter, and it is currently predicted an unknown particle or reaction is at hand.

I've heard that what happened is there was a big explosion producing a bunch of matter and ant-matter, which then proceeded to annihilate each other, and we are the matter that is left over from that process.
