Perhaps the strangest is the stuff we call antimatter. Morgan Freeman’s Through the Wormhole s1e7: What Are We Really Made Of? Science 2010
An antimatter bomb. ibid.
For every one billion particles of antimatter there were one billion and one particles of matter. And when the mutual annihilation was complete, one billionth remained – and that’s our present universe. Albert Einstein
Antimatter: the highest octane fuel in the universe. UFO Files s3e3: Alien Engineering 2/2, History 2006
What is this mysterious antimatter? And where did all of it go? The Universe s2e11: Unexplained Mysteries, History 2008
Every time matter comes into contact with antimatter the outcome is the same: they annihilate each other. ibid.
One possibility is that perhaps there was a slightly higher percentage of matter than antimatter in the early universe. ibid.
If you take matter and antimatter and combine it, it is explosive. And in fact is one of the greatest sources of energy in the universe. Professor Michio Kaku
Antimatter is the mirror image of ordinary matter. However, matter has one charge and antimatter has an opposite charge. Michio Kaku
Our most advanced theories cannot explain why there was this asymmetry between matter and antimatter. But thank God it exists. Michio Kaku
With perfect mathematical elegance Durac’s equation describes an atomic particle travelling at any speed ... As well as matter Durac’s equation predicts the existence of anti-matter. Jim Al-Khalili, Atom: The Illusion of Reality, BBC 2007
The vacuum seethes with huge numbers of matter and ant-matter particles continually being created and annihilated. ibid.
Anti-matter may sound like the stuff of science fiction but since it was first proposed as a concept eighty years ago scientists have been creating it in experiments. Jim Al-Khalili, The Hunt for the Higgs: A Horizon Special, BBC 2012
Does antimatter fall down or up? Horizon: Project Greenglow: The Quest for Gravity Control, BBC 2016
I like to say that while antimatter may seem strange, it is strange in the sense that Belgians are strange. They are not really strange; it is just that one rarely meets them. Lawrence M Krauss, A Universe from Nothing: Why There is Something Rather than Nothing
I think that the discovery of antimatter was perhaps the biggest jump of all the big jumps in physics in our century. Werner Heisenberg
The pure energy of the cosmos began to cool and create matter in the form of countless trillions of sub-atomic particles. The first stuff there ever was. Half these particles were made of matter, the same kind of stuff which makes us. The rest were made of the opposite matter. Stuff called anti-matter. When the two meet they destroy each other in a flash of energy. It seems as if building the universe is a pretty wasteful process. Fortunately, there was just a bit more matter than anti-matter. Just one in a billion particles of stuff survived. Which was lucky for us. Stephen Hawking’s Universe: Into the Universe: The Story of Everything, PBS 1997
A rocket powered by antimatter could reach a speed that’s 15% of the speed of light. How the Universe Works s3e8: Our Voyage to the Stars, Discovery 2014
