The Discovery of CP Violation

This is a very informative article on CERN Courier on the early days of the discovery of CP violation in elementary particle physics.

This is a very important discovery because, as of now, it is considered as one of the factors that might, just might (although the effect is still too small), explain why our universe is dominated by matter and not equal amount of matter-antimatter.

It is also one of the "Who Ordered That?" effect that many didn't see coming.
