Saturday, August 23 — Stained Glass Nanites

August 23, 2008

Today I Learned…

…that stained glass painted with gold apparently helps to purify the air when the sun shines through them.  (This from www.nanitenews.com)

Small particles of gold become extremely active when charged by sunlight, and they are able to react with and destroy so-called volatile organic chemicals (VOCs).

I guess this is an example of the church randomly happening on some science!  Love it.

Special bonus knowledge: I learned today that it’s possible for me to go an entire day while only receiving emails either from or about Barack Obama.
