‘What’s Crystallography?’ You Ask

"The scientific journey into the molecule turns 100-years-old" states the magazine Time today.time
With the advent of crystallography — the science of how matter is arranged — we learned how to visualize molecules in 3D, helping us make everything from better medicines to stronger materials. Despite that huge advance, if you stopped someone in the street and asked them what crystallography was, chances are you would get a blank stare. To help raise awareness, and to celebrate a century of amazing discoveries, 2014 has been declared the International Year of Crystallography.
