Today, someone cut me off in traffic so I rolled down my window and yelled, “Neutrinos have mass, you jerk!” I was only able to be sure of this fact thanks to the work of Takaaki Kajita and Arthur B. McDonald who won the Nobel Prize in Physics for their work in building our understanding of neutrinos.
