      Hi @emankid! another physics question, are you a fan?

      I’ll try to explain this the best I can but bear in mind I’m not a physicist. So anti-matter is the exact opposite to matter. For example, the electron which circles the nucleus in all atoms has an anti-matter particle called the positron. When the two meet they inihilate.

      Hope that answers your question
