The observation of a muon electric dipole moment would provide an additional source of CP violation which is required to explain the matter anti-matter asymmetry in the universe. The current experimental limit, |dμ| < 1.9 × 10−19e·cm, was set by the BNL E821 experiment. This paper discusses how the new experiment at Fermilab, E989 , aims to decrease this by two orders of magnitude down to 10−21e·cm.
