  • 1616 Birth of John Wallis, the first person to produce mathematical solutions describing inelastic collisions and who made contributions to infinitesimal calculus and to geometry

  • 1837 Birth of Johannes Diderik van der Vaals, winner of the 1910 Nobel Prize and known for the equation now named for him, which describes the behaviour of gases
  • 1887 Birth of Henry Moseley, whose measurements of the x-ray spectra of various elements put the empirical concept of the atomic number on a firm basis in physics
  • 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!
