There are several different models describing random spatial growth, of which first-passage percolation is one of the more well studied. However so, there are many questions that almost 50 years after its introduction remain unanswered. I will in this talk present the model, and a few facts that are known. I will also mention some of my own contributions, and further discuss some of the problems that remain open.
