Standing for Large Hadron Collider beauty, the LHCb is one of the six particle detector experiments at CERN. One of the primary goals of the detector is to solve the mystery of the Matter-Antimatter symmetry in the universe.
Matter, known as baryonic matter, and anti-matter, likewise known as anti-baryonic matter - are obviously not present in symmetrical amounts in the universe, but current theories says that they should be. When matter and anti-matter collide, they explode and demolish one another in an impressive show - and this should have happened at the beginning of the universe, and the result should have been a matter-less existence. However, baryonic matter prevailed - and the scientists at LHCb hope to determine why.
