[Host: E. Craig Dukes]
The existence of neutrinos -- neutral, massless, almost-
noninteracting counterparts of the electron -- was first proposed in
1930, in response to apparently incomprehensible experimental
results. Neutrinos have been a puzzle ever since! One indicator of
their importance is the unusually large number of Nobel prizes
awarded for neutrino work, the most recent in 2002. A brief account
of the neutrino story will lead to a discussion of current issues in
neutrino physics, including the intriguing possibility that neutrino
interactions explain the existence of all matter in the universe.
Techniques for the future study of neutrino physics will be described.
