There are some math notebook pages appearing in this movie. The Dan Brown book for the movie had been
great too. Here are two scenes. The second one shows some particle physics story at CERN
The Higgs particle was there discovered in 2011-2013. Anti particles are studied at CERN since a while
and here is a page about it.
One has however only produced tiny amounts of Anti matter (nanograms). It is the rarest, most
expensive and possibly most dangerous material. The Dan Brown story was probably inspired by
the fact that in 1996, the first anti matter atoms were created by humans.
In 2010, such atoms were first trapped and stored
CERN has a Website
explaining the science behind the story. One can read there, that one would with current technology
need one billion years to create the amount which was mentioned in the movie. It is also mentioned
there that a 80 kg person emits about 180 positrons per day, mostly from the decay of
potassium 40 which is contained drinking water or air. Here are the clips. One can hear people speaking
in Swiss German, in French and in Italian. Harvard appears also in the movie but as usual, no video footage
from Harvard on the ground, only drone picture.
