Why is there more matter in the universe than anti-matter? If they were produced in equal amounts in the universe, they should have annihilated and just left radiation behind. Does this mean Dirac's theory of anti-matter is wrong? An if anti-particles are mirror particles of our normal matter could there be "anti-stars" in our galaxy, stars made of anti-matter? That's what we talk about today.
