From its proposal to explain the apparent violation of energy conservation in beta decay to its strange behaviour as it travels long distances, the neutrino has always been one of the least well understood parts of our understanding of particle physics. Now there are indications that neutrinos could hold the key to explaining why our universe is made of matter and not antimatter. This talk will explain the history of the neutrino, its strange behaviour and how recent findings could have cosmological implications.
