This is the historic era in neutrino physics. I first review the properties of neutrinos and discuss why neutrino masses are interesting probes to physics beyond the Standard Model. Then I discuss how we have recently learned that they do have tiny mass and will learn in the near future to settle the remaining issues. Finally I argue that neutrino masses may well be relevant to the question "why we exist" in our universe.
