The Institute is celebrating 25 years of bringing researchers together!

Siobbhan Roberts gives us a very personal, and mathematical, encounter with the great John Conway.

This year's Nobel Prize for Physics brings together the physics of materials with one of our favourite areas of maths – *topology*. In this final article in a series, we asked Fiona Burnell to explain the maths behind the work, and how it may help lead to quicker and smaller electronics, and even the elusive quantum computer.

Has the future already already been written? Is time just an illusion? Take a step outside of spacetime with cosmologist Marina Cortês to discover the *block universe*.

Fundamental physics says time is symmetric - so why does time move forwards for us in a block universe?
