ELSEWHERE: Nobel Prize for Using Computers to Do Chemistry

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry, announced earlier this week, has been awarded to three different scientists this year. NPR has an interesting story on the new laureates and how they changed the way molecular interactions are studied. The scientists made computer models in which Newtonian physics and quantum mechanics—two fields of science that have been notoriously difficult to reconcile—work together to simulate complex chemical reactions.
