Congratulations to this week's winners of the Institute of Physics's annual awards. The 16 laureates include brothers George and Peter Kalmus, who each won a medal and prize.
George, formerly head of particle physics at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire and a noted leader in the scientific community, is a fellow of the Royal Society. But that honour still eludes his elder brother, who is emeritus professor of physics at Queen Mary, University of London. Fingers crossed that this latest award brings Peter, who has devoted much energy to explaining physics to schoolchildren, a step closer to the coveted postnomial.
