Despite the reputation academics have for stubbornly resisting change, universities have changed continually over the centuries and as a consequence our oldest universities are among the longest-lived institutions in the world. So where do we find ourselves today?

This issues headlines:
- Liquid salts rise to power
- South Africa's AIDS struggle becomes a fight for the living
- Starting now - the water revolution to keep our cities livable
- Cosmic Map makers join the search for extraterrestrial life
- Can science break the boarder patrol impasse?
