Physics 2010:

An Assessment of and Outlook for Physics

by The National Academies

The Board on Physics and Astronomy regularly engages in a survey of all the branches of physics. Since the process occurs every 10 years or so, it is called the decadal survey of physics. The survey process, which takes several years, encompasses atomic, molecular, and optical science, plasma physics, condensed matter and materials physics, elementary particle physics, nuclear physics, and gravitational physics.

The entangled dance of physics. Physics so permeates today's world that we often can't even see it. Here are some bold statements that should surprise no one: The legacy of physics is undeniably vast, yet often goes unnoticed. The practice of physics today has a breadth, depth, and richness that is unparalleled in history, yet a great many people are blind to the very existence of physics. The essence of physics retains its elegance and profundity even as its application can render it invisible. (Preberite članek Stephena G. Benka. Physics Today, December 2006, stran 51.)
