A Century of Physics Timeline

To celebrate its centennial last March 1999, the American Physical Society has produced a timeline entitled ‘A Century of Physics’. On eleven consecutive posters, which creates a 23-feet mural when mounted side by side, the milestones of the history of physics are exhibited in images and words.

The timeline functions at once a chronology, a work of art, a permanently open textbook, and a gigantic photo album covering a hundred years in the life of the community of physicists.

Access to the timeline and to the Wall Chart can be found at http://timeline.aps.org/APS/home_HighRes.html
