Scientists call the everyday matter of our world, such as tables and chairs, “normal matter.” Normal matter is made up of atoms, which in turn, are each made up of a nucleus and an electron or electrons. Normal matter is normal in that it is not antimatter nor dark matter. Normal matter is also called “ordinary matter” or “baryonic matter.” For more information, see “ordinary matter.”
