And in other glassy news ... 2 D Glass

And in other glassy news - the thinnest sheet of glass ever made - by accident, of course - was photographed to reveal the arrangement of the atoms in the glass. The glass sheet is only one molecule thick - or about as thick as a plastic grocery bag. ;-)

Science still doesn't understand glass completely.

Maybe someone will invent transparent aluminum ... ?
