In 1930, Wolfgang Pauli proposed that conservation of energy and momentum in beta decay required the existence of a new particle: the neutrino. Since then experimental methods have matured to the point that neutrino detection now has an important practical application, namely, enhancing nuclear security. In this Colloquium the challenges and advances in the field of neutrino detection and their use in national security are discussed.
