Title: QCD: The Glory and The Power

Abstract: After a brief oration in praise of the ideal mathematical beauty of QCD and its imposing experimental success, I will describe several of its ongoing and future applications at the frontiers of knowledge. These are the frontier of precision (muon $g-2$), the frontier of high temperature and density (heavy ion collisions), the frontier of late stellar evolution (supernovae and neutron stars), and the frontier of theoretical adventure (axions and dark matter).
