For years antimatter has been one of the most recognised and attractive words in science fictions but scientist’ understanding of antimatter as a real and powerful energy force has vastly improved in recent years.The paper gives a review of the existence of antimatter in the Universe. Antimatter is mirror image of matter it extends the concept of the antiparticle to matter. This idea is so revolutionary that even its discoverer initially feared its consequences. If a particle and its antiparticle come into contact with each other, the two annihilate – they may be converted into other particles with equal energy in accordance with Einstein’s equation E = mc2. This gives rise to high-energy photons (Gamma rays) or other particle-antiparticle pairs. The antimatter if used in certain fields, could give rise to highly innovative possibilities in regards to those fields. But the production of antimatter and its storage still remains very expensive as well as challenging too.
