The Amazing Tale of the Tiny Neutrinos

Prof. Giorgio Gratta
Physics Dept., Stanford University

Abstract

Neutrino physics has recently become a very hot topic in Particle Physics, Cosmology and Astrophysics with the first solid indication that neutrino masses might be finite.

While these results have implications in many disparate fields of science the study of these particles has led us near the world's largest particle accelerators and nuclear reactors, in deep mines, under the antartic ice-cap and in the depth of the oceans.

In this talk I will review some aspects of this big adventure that is poised to study the lighest of particle with finite mass we know
