There’s a factory in Europe that makes antimatter! It’s the rarest, most expensive, and potentially the most dangerous material on earth. Scientists don’t know why this material is so rare. Anti-atoms took 72 years after we discovered antimatter to make. Why?

Current estimate of Antimatter, courtesy of Elise:
Stefan Ulmer made a back-of-the-envelope calculation based on energy and power consumption. The explanation goes as follows:
1. CERN produces 3e7 antiprotons per AD cycle or about 1e15 per year
2. This is about 1e15*1.67e-27kg = 1.67 nanogram per year
3. 1 gram of antiprotons has an energy (E=mc^2) of 9e13 Joule
4. The efficiency of the antiproton production process is 1e-9, so you need a billion times more energy: 9e22 Joule
5. The cost of power for CERN is 1kWh = 3.6e6 Joule = 0.1 euro
6. So that would make 0.1/3.6e6*9e22 = 2.5e15 euro
7. And it would take CERN 6e8 years

Questions at CERN
Creating Antihidrogen:


  • Women talking about Physics or Astronomy is just too hot. New Sub today Physics Girl!

  • Day:Eternity of self qurentine and i'm learning bout most expensive stuff.

  • Home of the United Nations?

  • $2700 trillion per gram? WTF does that even mean?

  • It's literally the opposite of material, anti-material :)

  • Good luck selling some

  • id-tv.org/tv/video-D-td9B9fW4Q.html

  • Nothing else antimatters.

  • But can it make toast

  • Your wobbly little plant table stresses me out. :D

  • What is the use of anti matter??

  • You just have said "... we look around and we see almost completely matter". The reality is just this: modern science today proves to us that only 0.000000001% is actually matter. The rest is just an illusion of the mind. Actually, we see not matter, but their activity. Because of matter vibrations, the illusion of the mind is created. Good luck with your research!

  • 1:07 well yes but actually no. 5 of the 17 specialized agencies of the UN are in Geneva, the WHO for example. There is also an UN office but the UN HQ are in New York ! Moreover, Switzerland only join the UN as a member in 2002 !

  • I really hope when they drop the antimatter it goes up. If that happens we have hope for hover boards

  • Hi Dianna 😊 It might not be a Pu239 or U235 on that storage facility ?

  • Anti-matter is the rarest substance in the Universe?_ FALSE_ The Spice is the rarest substance in the Universe. - One can make anti-matter anywhere... the spice is only found on Arrakis.

  • Why are you so damn pretty and also a physics genius? How is that possible?

  • if antimatter destroy matter on touch...how can you play with it ?:D how do you know is rare ?! do you have an antiCup to keep it ?

  • They are just so dam happy!

  • Can you smoke it? 😟

  • one possibility on why antimatter is so hard to find is because of dark matter collisions

  • EU: Americans will use anything other than the metric system Diana: hold my sodium hexaflouride

  • All these experiments and no one has answered the question more important than how the system works ! No one is asking why ? All that has come from this is scientists realize from there various mathematics and ridiculous experiments that the system itself is simply too complex to be chance or evolution . Hence the simulation theory . Because they just can not bring themselves to admit the truth . We live in a created universe . We are spiritual beings having a human experience , not the other way around . Realize this , and then study your various fields of science with an unbiased mind and see what you can discover . Study the greatest minds works , and read it from them . They all found God at the conclusion of there studies . When you spend your life engrossed in one field of study , you miss all the magnificence of this world . You will never know anything because none of our science leads anywhere . Its all theories on top of theories on top of older theories . If you can not prove 1 theory ,how then can you just add another on top of it and say it works this way ? If you want to understand this world , then experience everything , all sciences . Don't specialize in anything but rather explore it all . We are all capable of seeing what is actually there without being told anything . Just open your eyes !

  • This must be the choice of Steins Gate!

  • It's prolly so rare bc it's so dangerous

  • I admit my knowledge of the argument is limited to Star Trek, but I sense these people is fiddling with something a little bit over the edge. I feel that 250 miles away from CERN could be not enough to be safe for me to live in.

  • Yes! Like Legos 😂

  • antimatter is when you start with something and then stop real,quick. So time is regurgitated, not deformed like space time.

  • 8:00 Good lord, don't drop it.

  • clicked on this hoping for some gas weed

  • I wish my physics teacher was as cute as you. I think I would have payed attention.. or lost it.. umm 🧐 ah puff lost my train of thought 😉

  • What if after big bang, antimatter coexisted in the different dimension and that dimension is separated from our dimension by the energy barrier ( dark energy)....!

  • Careful, Dan Brown warned us about this stuff!

  • this is the girl version of smarter everyday😂

  • I could have sworn anti matter was in fact the most abundant resource 😬

  • I have lot of antimatter minimum 300g. I collect under the soil. But how I sell my product.

  • You bc hull peasants

  • if i eat it will i loose weight?

  • Are they trying to create a wormhole? Who knows.. One day people can travel from one hemisphere to the other in a split second.. I guess this is the fuel..

  • The price will get better when they go into bulk production.

  • Is Anti matter matter? It doesn’t matter.

  • The matter that makes up that table sure moves around alot.

  • Madonna answered that decades ago: we live in a material world.

  • Its like alternate shaggy and regular shaggy

  • Imagine, sniffing that thing instead of coke.

  • Is it antifa tears?

  • Our galaxy is in a big bubble of matter. I mean think about it like this, if the big bang created both then overtime matter would start to coalesce into an area and when that matter gets dense enough to start pushing away the anti-matter. The matter gets so condensed that it starts to creat stars that then begin to start their own small area that is even lower in anti-matter. All of the "voids" in space that we can't figure out what makes it up is anti-matter. If we were ever to travel to another galaxy we would absolutely HAVE to travel through an anti-matter zone to get to the next galaxy. What if worm holes aren't to time travel but to be able to travel through anti-matter or they connect galaxies together.

  • "Creating Antihidrogen:" Pretty sure it's Antihydrogen, just saying. Anyway still need the dilithium crystals too.

  • What a nonsense title

  • The real question is what will she be called when she gets old? Physics woman And then Physics granny

  • I thought I was a geek

  • Wal-Mart will make cheap version soon.

  • Or poufff

  • She is like Penny...but in a parallel universe!

  • if this takes me 10 years straight i would do a milligram lol

  • the matter of physic law says if antimatter kicks the matter nothing else matter

  • How do you price this anti-matter? 🤔

  • What is the value of the human life??

  • in short : they are making and studying nothin

  • But if antimatter and matter disappear when they come into contact then wouldn't it be impossible to store antimatter inside something that is made out of matter ?!

  • Sounds like an accident waiting to happen!

  • What's the matter with antimatter? ;-)

  • 🤔

  • Just watched your face while u said something about bombing moon

  • What if we are the antimatter and it’s the matter? Mindfreak!

  • Mmmm this maybe a ROM thing rather than a RAM thing. Anti matter may appear based on conditions as a necessity, not something you "should extract". You could manipulate RAM data of a program, you cant touch the ROM data. Are science community certain everything is RAM data? All the super villains portrays this aspect of science very well, we must see, prove, and manipulate. How about just leave them be.

  • Isn’t this breaking the laws of physics; matter cannot be created or destroyed.

  • Eskooom

  • Stopped watching when she mentioned the word "math". Can't believe there is still people out there subscribing to a non-entity "sub-prehumanist" made up theory that's been lying to us for the last couple 100 years!

  • Answer to why anti matter is required is it will become smart weapon

  • Wow you make physics sound so cool....

  • Okabe rintarou: “write that down, write down”

  • No such thing as a big bang.

  • I'm worried they will die doing experiments with antimatter

  • It's insane ... wh..wh..😱

  • 4:05 If there was another world war difficult to end I bet scientists would reunite in another manhattan type project and this time come up with an anti-matter bomb.

  • human creating bomb to destroy earth, super genius kill us 😁😊

  • I had always thought that maybe it never existed naturally that math is what gave us the idea of antimatter and since we’ve never found it naturally it drove us to create it just to see if that math theory was right. I think just like the splitting of an atom this is only going to peak the interest of the military and it’s just another L for human kind

  • You water down literally water down how dangerous it is

  • 7:20 face I make when someone doesn't get my joke.
