I shall discuss the recent situation in the neutron physics. Namely, (1) signals for violation of the CKM unitarity after recent reevaluations of the neutron decay amplitude; (2) the neutron lifetime problem related to about 10 s discrepancy between the neutron lifetimes measured using so called bottle and beam methods; (3) neutron-antineutron and neutron-mirror neutron oscillations and experimental situation; (4) astrophysical consequences for neutron stars and cosmic rays.
