I have seen science in action!

And it is… completely incomprehensible to me. But then I am threatening to natter at my good host about gothic and neo-gothic architecture when we get out of this very shiny chemistry building, so fair is, in all likelihood, fair.

    I’m curious! Is this the thing of scientific sorts that your friend is working on? I’m not very well acquainted with Science in her actual intricacies, but I am fascinated in the Layperson Kind and would be interested in hearing what science in action is like!

      Science in action involved a lot of machines and beakers behind a perspex shield! My friend was causing a series of reactions which, he hopes, will create particularly strong rings of a certain metallic compound, and, by means I do not understand, give them memory at the atomic level. Basically, I have no idea but it looked impressive.

    So good! Reactions are always cool, especially to uninitiated persons… But that sounds genuinely fascinating on a conceptual level as well. I hope his hypotheses work out into something fascinating for him to work with 🙂
