"Far-Out Neutrinos: a New Kind of Astronomy"
Neutrino telescopes, proposed and under construction, should map out the
neutrino sky, analogous to the way the electromagnetic sky has been
mapped for centuries. Like light and unlike cosmic-rays, the neutrinos
will point back to their sources. But unlike light, the neutrinos are
not attenuated at high energies and so will allow us to see farther into
space and time, and deeper into sources. In this colloquium we
illustrate with specific examples the promise which neutrino astronomy
at energies at and above 100 TeV holds to study astrophysics, particle
physics, and maybe even cosmology.
