The Tokai-to-Kamiokande (T2K) long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment in Japan started operation in 2010 and has been leading the field since then. In this colloquium I will present the latest results of the T2K experiment from a total beam exposure of 2.23e21 protons on target. In addition, a 27% increase in statistics was achieved through improvements to the event reconstruction at Super-Kamiokande (SK), the T2K far detector.

Accelerator physicists deal with electromagnetic fields ruled by Maxwell's equations. These fields act on charged particles through the Lorentz force. There should be no mystery at all, only good old nineteenth-century physics with its amazing simplicity, its sharp accuracy. We may throw in a little bit of special relativity here and there, because particle accelerators often bring their projectiles close to the speed of light. But here again: only simplicity and accuracy.

Unlike powerful explosive scenarios such as supernovae, novae, and X-ray bursts, quiescent stellar evolution is governed by nuclear reactions between stable nuclei that take place at the lowest thermal energies, well below the Coulomb barrier of interacting nuclei. When trying to reproduce these processes in terrestrial laboratories, we are faced with tremendous experimental challenges that require the use of dedicated setups ideally in an underground environment to maximise the probability to detect rare events.
