Happy New Year 2008

Happy New Year, everyone.

2008 promises to be a very challenging year for physics and physicists in the US and UK. With severe budget cuts and outright pull-outs of several major projects, physicists from both nations are facing a degrading of the importance of their work. High energy physics and astronomy bears the largest brunt of budget cutbacks, and it is difficult to see how they can survive through this period. We can only hope that they will.
