This is the UC Berkeley entry in the American Chemical Society’s ‘What is Nano?’ contest. “We put a lot of work into making something we hoped would be accessible and enjoyable for everyone we know who doesn’t spend their life studying nanoscience,” says Patrick Bennett, the scientist who directed the video, told Wired.
The next item for your delectation is the welcome return of Richard Alley, who some of you may remember for his “musical review about the problem of scarce resources” set to the tune of Proud Mary and others may remember for his glacial calving work. Via the Highly Allochthonous blog comes this geological reworking of ‘Ring of Fire’.
