"Seeking the Origin of Asymmetry"
Presented by Xin Qian, Brookhaven National Laboratory

Hosted by: Laurence Littenberg
Why are we made of matter, not antimatter? Where such asymmetry comes from remains one of the biggest mysteries in physics. In this talk, the speaker will take you through the process how physicists design a scientific experiment aiming to address this important question. We will examine the thinking behind, review the current progress, and discuss the challenges in the future.
