Zero is Ruled Out. Neutrino Mass and its Consequences

No enrollment limit, no advance sign up
Single session event
An astonishing culmination of discoveries taking place over the last decade has led to a revolution in our understanding of neutrinos –one of nature’s most elusive particles. Originally proposed by Wolfgang Pauli in 1930 as a “desperate remedy” to save the law of conservation of energy, these chargeless, weakly-interacting, and (nearly) massless particles that permeate throughout the cosmos have been challenging our understanding of particle physics. During my talk, I will discuss the implications that come from a massive neutrino, and the current experimental efforts devoted to measuring neutrino mass.
