This special double issue of
is cause for celebration: both of the endeavours of physics to understand our Universe, and of the
writers of tomorrow
who may help explain it. We explore the frontiers of modern physics: searching for
in space and
exotic particles in the LHC
, looking through the
Hubble Space Telescope
, imagining a
, and wrestling with one of the
biggest problems in modern physics
. And the winners of the
new writers award 2009
most beautiful equation of them all
, explain the
, and unveil the
curse of good looks
. We raise a toast to mathematics and physics — to all the explorers of the new frontiers and the new writers who can take us there!
Slow down, Universe!
The Universe's expansion may not be accelerating as fast as we thought.
Emmy Noether: Against the odds
Emmy Noether, pioneering female mathematician, died 80 years ago.
Why we want proof
What are mathematical proofs, why do we need them and what can they say about sheep?
The future of proof
Will computers ever replace human mathematicians?
Find the gap
There's been progress on one of the biggest open problems in maths: the twin prime conjecture.
