What a year it’s been for physics, and here at Physics World we are busy preparing our bumper crop of year-end features that cast an eye back over the past 12 months.
Our celebration of 2012 kicks-off tomorrow at 11.00 a.m. with the announcement of the prestigious Physics World award for Breakthough of the Year. In addition to revealing the winner, we will also be citing nine other highly commended research projects that hit the headlines this year.
Next week, Physics World‘s multimedia editor James Dacey will presenting his five favourite multimedia productions from 2012.
Reviews and careers editor Margaret Harris will be revealing the Physics World Book of the Year. Part of the fanfare will include a podcast in which Margaret and other Physics World colleagues enjoy a lively discussion about the merits of this year’s best books.
News editor Michael Banks and reporter Tushna Commissariat are also chipping in, with their picks for the best blog entries of the year and best pictures of the year, respectively.
And don’t miss Physics World editor Matin Durrani peering into his crystal ball to make some predictions for physics in 2013.
