Antimatter and dark matter are two of modern science’s biggest mysteries, and now scientists are probing whether they could be linked in order to explain why and how our universe exists at all.
Physicists currently don’t understand why, at the origin of the universe or just after, matter and antimatter were seemingly not produced in equal quantities. If this had happened—as would be the expected result, assuming symmetry in the universe—opposing matter and antimatter would have been cancelled out, leaving nothing at all. The universe would never have formed.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound.
