From one atomic sheet to domain of cosmic kingdom (Nobel Prize in Physics -2011)

Is it a correlation ? I do not think so,  as both the discoveries have thrilled the mankind.

I am talking about the discoveries of Graphene and evidence of accelerating expansion of our universe

Graphene won the Nobel Prize in Physics (2010) and this year it is accelerating expansion of universe (2011).

It is mere a coincidence that two extreme ends of length scale, one being the nanoscale and other being the cosmic scale,  have been awarded the prize in consecutive years.


Congrats to the astrophysicists for their great contribution in the field !

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
