Mapping out the properties of antimatter

Why does anything exist? That is really the fundamental question we try to answer through high-precision studies of antimatter. All matter that builds up the universe we see should really have been annihilated through contact with it mirror image – antimatter. Clearly, this has not happened, which is one of the great still unsolved mysteries of Physics.
