Five spacecraft now heading toward an ambitious March 1986 encounter with comet Halley mark the beginning of a new era in cometary research, which promises to modify our understanding of the evolution of the solar system.

The new high‐school courses introduced in the 1950s and 1960s made physics more interesting but also tougher and more abstract; a new program at Rutgers may provide an alternative approach, appealing to a broader spectrum of students.

The advent of quantum mechanics caused a greater transformation in the understanding of physical reality of microscopic phenomena than the change in the understanding of macroscopic phenomena brought about by relativity.
