"Neutrino, Elementary Particle and SuperSTAR"
Today there is much concern about the tiny neutral particle the neutrino. It has been in the lime-light in the popular press from science magazines to headlines in the New York Times. This is a great change from when the particle was first postulated to exist. Even its advocates doubted its existence at that point. However, now, the neutrino plays a pivotal role in many major discoveries in elementary particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology, and will continue to be important to study for decades to come. This colloquium will describe the neutrino, discuss its major role in advancing our understanding of elementary particle physics and conclude with the exciting new results we can expect from future experiments currently under construction.
