The Alchemist in Beautiful Downtown Burbank

This week The Alchemist takes in the beauty of a polar, downtown Burbank, crystallizes thoughts on organic materials, solves the chicken and egg paradox with a crack, and scales the heights with gecko-like adhesive composites. There is insulation on the cards for the next-generation of electronics and finally a major funding initiative for metamaterials in the UK.
