Physics World

Download your free copy of the October 2013 issue of Physics World – the member magazine of the Institute of Physics.

The issue looks back at some of the highlights in physics of the last 25 years and also forward to where the subject is going next. We've split the bulk of the issue into five sections, each with five items (five times five being 25, of course):

  • Find out our choice of the top five discoveries in fundamental physics over the last 25 years.
  • See what five leading researchers have to say about Physics World's choice of the five biggest unanswered questions in physics right now.
  • Enjoy our pick of the five top images from the last 25 years that have let us "see" a physical phenomenon or effect.
  • Learn more about the five people who are changing the way physics is done.
  • Gaze into the future as we disclose the five most promising spin-offs from physics.
