  • 1983 The Pioneer 10 space probe travels beyond the orbit of Pluto
  • 1953 Physicists Rosalind Franklin, Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins and biologist James Watson publish their paper in Nature on the structure of DNA, which they'd discovered using x-ray crystallography
  • 1900 Birth of Wolfgang Pauli, known for his exclusion principle in quantum mechanics - that no two identical fermions can occupy the same state at the same time - for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1945
  • Physics in Perspective
    Watch talks from well-renowned physicists at from our lecture series, you may even learn a thing or two

  • Schools lecture series
    The schools lectures feature topics from the Olympics to rock music. Plenty of physics to learn too!
