Just one of Sakharov’s conditions of baryogenesis has not yet been observed experimentally: baryon number violation. Finding such a rare signal would be an experimental triumph. I’ll review some of the essence of baryogenesis, B-L conservation in the Standard Model, the sphaleron, the possibility of B-L violation, why low scale baryogenesis should be investigated, and the prospects of observing such a signal in future experiments like DUNE and the ESS.
