Antimatter is a matter that has elementary particles that are the opposite of normal matter. It is a
physical entity that has a positive mass which is the same to normal matter except that its charge
and other properties are flipped. Every part of the normal matter in the universe has an antimatter
version in it. For example, the antimatter version of the electrons is positrons. Electrons and
positrons have the same mass, spin and charge magnitude (Popławski, 2011). The difference is
that the positrons are positively charged and electrons are negatively charged and other
properties are flipped. When electrons and positrons are in contact, they annihilate and their mass
is converted into energy in gamma rays form. In the same manner, antimatter annihilates its
normal matter version when they are in contact. In other words, antimatter can be thought of as a
normal matter traveling backward in time. In this scenario, a particle-antiparticle annihilation can
be thought a particle traveling forward in time, become the same particle by traveling backward
in time and being knocked by the gamma rays. This concept of traveling applies only to a few
and specific antimatter events (Popławski, 2011). These specific events obey the conversion of
energy by not allowing a human being to travel back in time. Small quantities of antimatter are
found on the earth planet. These antimatters are created by high energy cosmic rays that are from
supernovas when they came in contact with earth surface. Also, antimatter is created by natural
radioactive decay in the earth's rocks. However, this antimatter does not stay on earth for a very
long time since they are easily bouncing up against normal ...
