Geochemistry

What sets George Cody, staff scientist at the Geophysical Laboratory,  apart from other geochemists is his pioneering use of sophisticated techniques such as enormous facilities for synchrotron radiation, and sample analysis with nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to characterize hydro

If you freeze a liquid fast enough, it becomes a glass, something that is structurally similar to liquid but incapable of flow. This concept holds true even for metals.
