"Neutrino Oscillations and the MINOS Experiment"
Neutrinos have started to gain enormous attention over the last 30 years because of strange properties that allow them to seemingly disappear when travelling long distances. I will give brief history of the important discoveries by neutrino experiments to put the newly-started MINOS experiment into context. MINOS is an experiment to produce neutrinos at Fermilab (near Chicago) and fire them undgeround to the Soudan lab (near Duluth), a baseline of 730km. The challenges of performing this long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment will be discussed.
