Physics proved that subatomic particles can turn into antimatter and back


Experiments of CERN showed that the subatomic particles can spontaneously turn into their own antipartice and back. Scientists hope that it will help to find an answer to one of the largest mysteries of modern science.

All that we see around consists of usually matter dominating the universe. Antimatter is its antagonist similar to everything, with the exception of the opposite charge. Therefore, in the collision of particles of substance and antimatter, they are annihilated with the release of a tremendous amount of energy.

Analyzing the data of the second launch of a large hadron collider, physicists from Oxford University found that the charming meson can spontaneously turn into its own antipartice and vice versa.

The discovery was done when scientists studied the formation of these subatomatic particles as a result of collisions of protons on the tank. Usually they consist of charming quarks and ascending antiquarks, and their antiparticles contain charming antiquarks and ascending quarks, but there is a slight difference in mass, only 10-38 grams.

Looking through the results of experiments, scientists saw that the mass of some mesons after education changed precisely for this value. According to scientists, such oscillations are very difficult to notice, since they require a certain time for which most of the particles simply disintegrate before the transition.

Researchers suggest that this tiny discovery can be a huge step towards the raysterity of the mystery of the imbalance of matter and antimatter in our universe. It gave rise to a hypothesis that other subatomic particles can also switch between opposite states, but they are moving from antimatter into matter more often than the opposite.

Another experiment of CERN recently also showed that elementary
