Now I am curious: How come there are more neutrons than protons in the universe if we had 100 early seconds of pure neutron decay? (Is that true? I am assuming that since almost all nuclei have more neutrons than protons)

Hmmm... maybe the initial ratio was more favorable for neutrons, I don't know if the Q factor was positive or negative.
Takemichi Okui

There are more protons than neutrons in the universe. The universe is basically hydrogen.
