"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.
