Neutrinos are a messenger of extreme condition inside a supernova core and a new-born neutron star. Since current ground-based detectors have potential to detect ~10,000 neutrinos from supernova at the galactic center, they could tell us lots of important physics. It includes: explosion mechanism, shock wave propagation, core temperature, and gravitational binding energy, as well as neutrino properties as elementary particle. In addition to the galactic supernova neutrino burst, one can still learn about them with diffuse supernova neutrino background, which is also soon to be detected. We review current situation from both points of view, and discuss prospects for future neutrino astrophysics.
