Weren't there recent experiments that showed that the creation of matter/anti-matter was not completely symmetrical (i.e. slightly more matter is made for each tonne of anti-matter). Suggesting that there might not be any great quantities of anti-matter left in the Universe (known and unknown). That we, and everything we see, are just what's left over after the rest of the matter/anti-matter destroyed itself.
