How the neutrino could solve great cosmic mysteries and win its next Nobel Prize

The humble neutrino particle won its fourth Nobel Prize in physics this year (also in 2002, 1995 and 1988). Despite being millions of times smaller than other subatomic particles, it is of major importance in physics and could be the key to unravelling some of the universe’s best-kept secrets. So where is neutrino research heading next – and what could it discover?
