New result could shed light on the existence of the Universe

The Big Bang should have created a universe with equal amounts of matter and anti-matter. Instead, we only see antiparticles when they are produced in nuclear reactions, cosmic rays, and particle colliders.

The dominance of matter that we observe in the universe is possible only if there is ‘CP violation’ – differences in the behavior of particles and antiparticles. Although physicists first observed certain forms of CP violation decades ago, those differences were consistent with the Standard Model of particle physics, and far too small to explain the apparent imbalance between matter and antimatter.

Now, scientists with the DZero collaboration at Fermilab have found evidence for significant CP violation in the behavior of particles containing bottom quarks. And they did it using grid computing.
