A few million neutrinos pass through every square centimeter of you every second leaving no trace. What does this tell us? Human beings are not very good neutrino detectors. So how do we detect neutrinos, why is it so difficult, what do we know about them, and why do we care?

Lancaster's involvement in the international T2K experiment is allowing us to further our

understanding of these elusive, fundamental particles.
