UK Bragg Nobel T-shirt


This classic stamp from the UK celebrates the determination of the first crystal structure by the father and son team of Bragg and Bragg in 1914. The importance of this discovery was immediately recognized and in 1915 the Braggs were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics. (Talk about earning your "Bragging Rights"!)  In 2015 the world celebrated the International Year of Crystallography, and structure determination remains a vital and innovative area of research and immense practical use.
