The APS Centennial Celebration was the largest meeting of physicists in history. Scientists from around the globe gathered in Atlanta to celebrate the first 100 years of the American Physical Society and a century of remarkable discoveries in physics.
One goal of the event was to communicate clearly that physics not only gives us knowledge about how our world works, but that this knowledge has contributed to the technologies which fuel the economy and strengthen the nation.
