This slideshow presents images from a paper by Noordiun et al. on the emergence of self-assembling, complex mineral nanostructures
from solution by manipulation of conditions in the solution such as temperature, pH, and CO 2 concentrations.
In 1992, astronomers announced that a whirling neutron star called a millisecond pulsar harbored the first known planets outside
our solar system: extrasolar planets, or exoplanets. Two decades on, nearly 900 of them have been confirmed, and hundreds

In recent years a movement for global mental health has gained momentum. One of its leading ideas is to train general practitioners,
