Neutral Particle Power: Using neutrinos to talk to aliens and destroy nuclear weapons

Neutrinos are tiny little mysterious particles. They can pass through a wall of lead several hundred light years thick without stopping or even slowing down. We only recently managed to catch some of them, and discovered that they oscillate and actually have mass, which made physicists rethink the basic nature of our Universe. I will discuss some interesting potential uses of neutrinos in light of these new findings.
