2010 is Year of the Laser


I'm starting to collect organizations and events for the public that relate to physics. Coming in 2010 is Laserfest. From the website:

Begun as a collaboration between the American Physical Society, the Optical Society and SPIE, LaserFest is a yearlong celebration of the 50th anniversary of the laser, which was invented in 1960. From DVD players to eye surgery, the laser is one of the greatest inventions of the 20th century—one that has revolutionized the way we live.
