    Abstract
     
    This paper proposes that the elusive neutrino is a space-like unitary
    irreducible representation of the Poincare Group. Although its imaginary mass
    is not a physical observable, its square is. This amount is found experimentally to be
    negative. Therefore, the neutrino is a tachyon with a measurable property; the squar
    e of its mass. This paper does not resolve the problem of how the neutrino propagates in the space.
    Further studies are necessary to address this question.
