The world would be a different place today without crystallography
‘If it were not for the discovery [of X-ray crystallography] 100 years ago, the world would look a very different place than it does now,’ commented Mike Glazer, emeritus professor of physics at the University of Oxford, on 12 December.
He was replying to a journalist’s question during the first press conference for the International Year of Crystallography, which gets under way with an opening ceremony at UNESCO headquarters on 20 and 21 January. The Year is being piloted jointly by UNESCO and the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr). (More)
