Just spotted this great collection of TED-Ed GIFs from Roberto!

Particles come in pairs, which is why there should be an equal amount of matter and antimatter in the universe. Yet, scientists have not been able to detect any in the visible universe. Where is this missing antimatter? CERN scientist Rolf Landua returns to the seconds after the Big Bang to explain the disparity that allows humans to exist today.

From the TED-Ed Lesson What happened to antimatter? - Rolf Landua
