The highs and lows of physics in 2020, we reveal our Breakthrough of the Year

17 Dec 2020 Hamish Johnston

While 2020 started like any other year, it quickly became apparent that it was going to be a year like no other. In this episode of the Physics World Weekly podcast, we have a lively chat about how the extraordinary events of 2020 affected physics and physicists, and how scientists around the world have rallied to fight COVID-19.

Also in this episode is an interview with Erik Bakkers of the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands, whose team has won the Physics World 2020 Breakthrough of the Year.

This is the final Physics World Weekly podcast of 2020. Please join us again next year on 7 January for the next episode.
