I am heading to China tomorrow for a five-day trip in what promises to be a fascinating update on some of the physics that is being carried out in the country.
The purpose of my journey is to gather material for an upcoming special report on China, which will be published later this year.
There is so much physics going on in the country that we thought there is enough material for a follow-on report. It also offers the opportunity to maintain some of the contacts that we have established in China over the last few years.
This time around I am heading to Shanghai first, then making my way to Beijing later in the week.
The schedule is jam-packed with tours of major institutions such as Tsingua, Peking and Shanghai Jiao Tong universities, as well as the Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility and the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics in Beijing.
I am sure the meetings will provide a lot of interesting stories, so keep an eye out for updates on the Physics World blog over the coming week.
