Abstract: The quest for the solar gravity modes (or g modes) is key for the understanding of the structure and dynamics of the solar core. We review the history of the solar g-mode searches which is separated in three nearly distinct eras which correspond to: the theory of g modes, the search from the ground and the search from space. The prospects of definitive solar g-mode detection are also discussed.
