Did you know that, on a molecular level, the surface of ice is actually more like a liquid than a solid?
This post was brought to you in honor of my close friend, who defended her PhD today. Congratulations, Dr. Sumi Wren!
The molecular ice image was modified by CAYF and was originally modelled and created by my old labmate, Dr. Diego Ardura, and this work is published here: http://dx.doi.org/10.1021/
