Cell phones, navigation devices, computers. We are surrounded by technology on a daily basis and we would like for these devices to be as small, safe, and efficient as possible. We can thank physics for these advancements and scientific work and research conducted by Alberta Bonanni's has contributed to these advancements. Ever since she was a child, the leading researcher has been fascinated by the world of light, crystals, and art. Bonanni believes that in order to better understand the laws of life, we need to first look at - and explore - the world from different perspectives. She talks more about this in her piece in the scilog, opens an external URL in a new window.
