Scientists working at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland have discovered a mysterious region of space in their efforts to recreate the conditions moments after the so-called “big bang” 13.7 billion years ago.

In smashing subatomic particles together at extremely high velocities, they have found that some particles disappear into a realm of “negative space.”


This is the same negative space that exists in women’s handbags that allow them to carry two or three times the amount of stuff such bags should be able to hold.

It is the same region of space where socks disappear to in the dryer.
