As the physics community gets ready to celebrate the centenary of Einstein's papers on relativity, the quantum theory of light and Brownian motion, many of PhysicsWeb's highlights of 2004 can be traced back to what Einstein did in 1905.
Other highlights include evidence for ancient water on Mars, advances in low-temperature physics and the world's smallest atomic clock.
