Almost everyone is probably wondering why the Universe has this property, and why, according to Forbes, it only shows up for the "weak interactions and whereas the strong, electromagnetic and gravitational interactions are all perfectly symmetric between left- and right-handed configurations."

This is a fact that has been scientifically verified empirically in many ways, with new trials poised to test this supposition even further.
