Question
Dear Brother,

Help me in the subject of Matters in Universe.

What is Anti-Matter? How can we believe?

Regards
Mohammed Tharik F

Answer
Hi, Thanks for writing!  Anti-matter is basically the same thing as matter-it has mass, volume, etc., except, being the opposite of matter, it annihilates matter when combined with it, with both the matter and anti-matter converted into a tremendous amount of energy.  We know it exists, due to nuclear research, as a small amount of antimatter is produced in some procedures.  Write anytime.
