Today marks the 30th anniversary since our alumnus Prof Sir Tim Berners-Lee created the World Wide Web.

He matriculated in 1973 and was a student at The Queen's College. Where you here at the same time? Have you got any stories to share, photos, anecdotes? We'd love to share them with our alumni and physics community, or event the Physics Newsletter.

2019 is a year of various important anniversaries, including the first 50 years since Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin, both American, landed the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC.
