In March 2014, my colleagues and I published a paper in Science. Here are the highlights – and the implications.
This week we all go to Kongsberg, a small town south-east of Oslo. The first academic training in Norway started here in 1757, primarily related to mining, mineralogy, and chemistry. Kongsberg is still famous for the old silver mines and spectacular mineral samples.
