We prove that every K3 surface of odd Picard number has infinitely many irreducible rational curves. The proof follows the method of Bogomolov-Hassett-Tschinkel, which uses that all (non-supersingular) K3 surfaces over finite fields have even Picard number. Using what we call “rigidifiers” and reduction to characteristic p, we construct rational curves of arbitrarily high degree by deforming rigid stable maps.
