Neutrinos are one of the most fascinating types of elementary particles. They are the lightest particles in the universe. Determining their mass has stretched the limits of physics research for many decades now. Neutrinos are the key, in fact, to many as yet unsolved scientific questions – ranging from the microcosmos of elementary particles to the biggest structures of our universe. For neutrinos can be described as cosmic architects; they play a role in shaping the visible structures of the universe and also influence the formation and distribution of galaxies.
