JustCurious?! Posted March 20, 2013 Share Posted March 20, 2013 (edited) Hi all! Just read Hawking's A Brief Time in History and starting on The Grand Design. I have to say my mind is blown! I never really understood what my physic's professor was really talking about until now. Anyway, I have a couple questions regarding the matter-antimatter asymmetry/CP violation. I read about how near the event horizon of black holes, one particle of the quark-antiquark pair fall into the black hole while the other particle can escape and as more mass is added to black holes, they can evaporate. I was wondering if there is a possibility that this black hole evaporation can cause matter-antimatter asymmetry if more quarks escape the event horizon as opposed to antiquarks. I think Hawking mentioned in his book that there are less primordial black holes than expected. If most of the primordial black holes have evaporated already and if a disproportionate number of quark particles escape the event horizon, could the matter-antimatter asymmetry be explained by the evaporation of most primordial black holes and escape of more quarks than antiquarks in the process? Sorry if this post is confusing or scientifically ignorant! Just some thoughts while I was reading. Edited March 20, 2013 by JustCurious?! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
