May you find yourself in the world…and may you enjoy the company!
From the METRO paper, Mat 23, 2013

Scientists at Harvard University have been able to grow microscopic crystals into dainty "flower" structures on a beaker of chemical fluid.

The growth of crystals can be controlled to create intricate molecular objects. Two chemical compounds are dissolved in water in a simple glass beaker.

As CO2 enters the beaker from the air, it triggers reactions that result in forming microscopic objects, a process which takes up to 4 hours.

By manipulating th mixture's conditions, like adding some acid or kitchen salt, a large diversity of shapes-from vases to corals-can be made.

What will they think of next?

Love,
Sue
