The fascinating world of crystallography

Papercut animated short// With Johanna
Johanna reflects on the structure of a snowflake. She learns of Johannes Kepler’s awareness of its regular symmetry 400 years ago. Just 100 years ago, it was discovered that X-ray diffraction could show the atomic structure of crystalline materials. Johanna learns how these discoveries led to enormous advances in physics, chemistry, biology and medicine, many of which were rewarded by Nobel Prizes. The celebration of these advances in this International Year of Crystallography 2014 inspire her to imagine what might yet be discovered … and how she could be part of that great adventure.
