Neutrino is one of the most abundant and elusive particles in the universe. Even today, sixty years after their initial discovery, there remain many open questions. In this talk, after reviewing the history of neutrinos, I will discuss the phenomena of neutrino oscillations and their implications for particle physics. Among the neutrino interactions, nuclear beta decay plays an especially important role. I will use this process to discuss the ongoing experimental and theoretical efforts to study neutrinos.
