Dandav Posted November 12, 2022 Report Share Posted November 12, 2022 Let's assume that somewhere in the open space there is a mighty accelerator and we have full control on it. We can set its size, its Power (including EM energy), Its gravity, Its Temp, its Pressure and so on. I assume that in this accelerator we can generate particles/antiparticles as electron/positron and quarks/antiquarks (Up & Down). However, proton is a complex particle as it is a combination of two up quarks, one down quark + gluons while there is no anti-proton or anti-gluons in the nature. Therefore, do you agree that there is no way to directly create a proton/antiproton in this accelerator? Hence, could it be that the only way to create a proton is by first creating the Up/down quarks/antiquarks, and just after having the correct quarks we can add the gluons in order to have real proton? Never the less, as there is no anti-gluons in the nature, how can we get a gluons to be added to those Up/Down quarks in order to set a proton?
