Chiu, H.-Y., 1966: Neutrinos in astrophysics and cosmology. Annu. Rev. Nucl. Sci., 16, 591-618, doi:10.1146/annurev.ns.16.120166.003111.

Since its existence was postulated in 1932, the neutrino has been an elusive particle and until recently its theoretical importance has been to salvage the conservation laws of physics. As far back as 1939, Gamow and Schönberg recognized the role played by neutrinos in the course of the evolution of stars, the fundamental building blocks of the universe. However, the study of the relation between neutrinos and the theory of stellar evolution has become more active only in recent years during which theories of both the weak interaction and the stellar interior have undergone great advances.
