A number of experiments around the globe have been built to observe a rare nuclear physics phenomenon called double beta decay. These experiments aim to test the hypothesis that, within the realm of neutrinos, matter and antimatter are one and the same. If neutrinos are indeed their own antiparticles, they could alter the balance of matter and antimatter, potentially explaining how matter came to dominate the universe.
