The Big Bang model predicts that equal amounts of matter and antimatter were produced at the beginning of time. So how can the Universe exist? Why didn't all the matter annihilate with the antimatter? Why did some matter survive? Why not antimatter? Particle Physics has an explanation to these questions that goes under the name of "CP violation". What is CP violation? Can it be measured in the lab? Does it explain the Universe as we know it? These and other questions will be addressed in this talk.
