Neutrinos are three of the 12 fundamental particles.
The phenomenon of neutrino oscillations, which implies
that neutrinos have non-zero mass, was discovered
at the end of the 20th century.  There is a
world-wide assortment of experiments studying neutrinos
which come from the sun, the atmosphere, nuclear reactors,
accelerators, and other possible sources.  I will review
some neutrino properties which have recently been measured,
and describe how some upcoming experiments will be able to
answer questions about the neutrino that we know have answers.
The most important question is whether neutrinos exhibit CP
violation, which could be related to the matter-antimatter
asymmetry in the universe.
