Description

Peer deep into the heart of existence and find out why particle chaos was the making of matter.
WHY IS THERE ALWAYS SOMETHING RATHER THAN NOTHING?

As you read this, billions of neutrinos from the sun are passing through your body, antimatter is sprouting from your dinner and the core of your being is a chaotic mess of particles known only as quarks and gluons.

Following the recent discovery of the Higgs Boson, WhyThe Universe Exists takes you deeper into the world of particle physics, exploring how the universe functions at the smallest scales.

Find out about the hunt for dark matter, discover how accelerators such as the Large Hadron Collider are rewinding time to the first moments after the big bang, and learn how ghostly neutrino particles may hold the answers to the greatest mysteries of the universe.
