Yesterday, today, tomorrow...
25 years ago in the USSR there was organized a new institution - the General Physics Institute. Its organizer and director was an eminent physicist of the XX century, Nobel Laureate, Academician Aleksandr Mikhailovich Prokhorov.
He gave the name to his institute, and thereby defined the priorities and objectives of fundamental and applied physics for many decades to come.
The film is about the history and present of the institute, about the successes of Russian scientists and about the latest achievements of physical science.
