The five most popular articles of 2021 involve a controversial nuclear submarine, Russia's relationship with the West, Covid, and an unexpected classic.

5. Old, but Gold

This is an article that absolutely deserves a new round for new readers: Up, close and spectacular – Giving New Life to Old Forefathers.
