From the BBC:
Future of physics ‘under threat’
Leading physicists have told the BBC that long-term research is suffering because of a shortage of funding.
They were responding to a government review which concluded that physics in Britain was “strong” and had an excellent international reputation.
They say a 25% cut in research grants is threatening the future of the field and has prompted many promising young physicists to leave.
They also say many university physics departments are shrinking.
Some have had to halve in size because of a lack of money, the scientists say.
Meanwhile, the British government spends lots of money on bailing out bankers … war in Iraq … war in Afghanistan … etc.
Bizarre “quantum” behavior noted in device
large enough to see:
The tiniest objects have been found able to behave
in two opposite ways at once. Physicists are trying
to show similar tendencies in bigger things.
