From small beginnings: the transformation of radio astronomy

Having emerged from amateur beginnings in the backyards of radio engineers, radio astronomy is now the focus of elite, international global consortia. Emma Chapman outlines how the subject has developed and why it needs to strike a fine balance between its science and engineering roots. Also in this issue, Robert P Crease and Gino Elia describe how Bose–Einstein condensation was first predicted 100 years ago, while James McKenzie looks at a Birmingham firm that's leading the way in recycling permanent magnets.
