Neutrinos are almost massless chargeless particles that only feel the weak interaction. They are hard to make (unless you have a nuclear reactor or particle accelerator lying around) and even harder to detect. Despite these obstacles, a whole new field of neutrino studies has opened up since the definite observation of neutrino oscillations in the late 90’s. I will review a small fraction of the exciting recent results in neutrino physics and outline some of our plans for the future.
