We review the motivations and development of techniques that led to the recent trapping of antihydrogen atoms be the ALPHA collaboration, recently published at Nature magazine and being awarded the "Physics World 2010 Breakthrough of the Year". The recent developments enable us to the next phase, which is the comparison of the spectra of antihydrogen with that of hydrogen, in a test of the CPT symmetry, as well as the Equivalence Principle.
