"Making Neutrino Astronomy Real"
ABSTRACT:

For over 50 years, people have been discussing the promise of high-energy neutrino astronomy.  For most of that time, wholesale theoretical conjecture was unmatched by even a trifling return of measured experimental facts.  Then in 2013, the IceCube neutrino observatory discovered astrophysical neutrinos with energies up to fifteen orders of magnitude above those of visible light.  What does this mean for understanding astrophysical sources, the properties of neutrinos, and the contents of the Universe?
