Speakers: Dr. Susan Cartwright

Uncharged, almost massless, and so weakly interacting that it would take a light-year if lead to have a 50% chance of stopping one, neutrinos are the most elusive particles in the universe.  Yet without them, the Sun would not shine, most of the elements in the periodic table would never have formed, and it's possible that the universe itself would be almost entirely devoid of matter.

In this talk, I'll discuss how neutrinos were discovered, how they are detected, and why they might  be the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything
