Black clouds and silver linings: 2016 chemistry Nobel Laureate Fraser Stoddart's moving tribute to his wife

Sir Fraser Stoddart shared this year's Nobel Prize in chemistry for constructing tiny molecular machines based on the remarkable phenomenon of self-assembly, a process by which forces between atoms automatically pull diverse molecules together into precise geometric configurations without having to explicitly position them this way. These machines represent much promise for the field of nanotechnology, especially when we figure how to harness the mechanical forces in these molecules to perform specific functions like making copies of themselves, killing cancer cells or building other molecular materials.
