Dr. Sir Harold Kroto, co-recipient of the 1996 Nobel Prize in Chemistry will be at the Orlando Science Center for a special talk about his work in the field of chemistry entitled "Some Secrets of Outer Space Uncovered by Discoveries in NanoSpace." This is a unique opportunity for both science center members and the general public.

Dr. Kroto was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his advancement of the field of chemistry through his work that led to the discovery of the Bucky ball. A Bucky ball was one of the first nanoparticles ever discovered. They are a sheet of specially arranged carbon atoms that are connected together in a similar pattern as a soccer ball.
