Not everyone would be willing to say that he believes in the existence of the neutrino, but it is safe to say there is hardly one of us who is not served by the neutrino hypothesis as an aid in thinking about beta-decay process.

I am not much impressed by the neutrino theory. In an ordinary way I might say that I do not believe in neutrinos. ..Dare I say that experimental physicists will not have sufficient ingenuity to make neutrinos?
