An artist's depiction of different cluster shapes.

Scientists have long studied how atoms and molecules structure themselves into intricate clusters, but researchers from Harvard University discovered additional clues as to how and why groups of atoms and molecules may favor less symmetrical and more complex, flexible geometric patterns. To read more about this research, see the story "Learning from Toys" in Harvard's daily on-line newsletter, the Harvard Gazette.
