Season’s greetings

By Matin Durrani

Season’s greetings to all readers.

The Physics World staff are all on a well-earned Christmas break right now.

While they’ve all got a few days off, there’s plenty to keep you amused over the holiday period.

If you haven’t seen it already, don’t miss our breakthrough of the year, which went to research into antimatter, as well as our top 10 physics books from the last 12 months.

We’ve also included a selection of the most stunning pictures of 2010 as well as our favourite quirky stories that made us laugh throughout the year.

Finally, there’s our look forward to 2011, which promises so much. That’s the thing about physics – it just never ceases to amaze us.

See you all in the new year, and thanks for your dedicated interest throughout 2010.

P.S. For all materials-science lovers out there, we’ve also just posted a couple of videos from the Materials Research Society fall meeting in Boston earlier this month. There’s a vox-pop with delegates as well as as an interview with Ian Robertson, incoming head honcho at the National Science Foundation’s division of materials research.
