The Astrochymist

URL:www.astrochymist.org
  • Creativity in design
  • Narrow audience
One of my dreams as a child was to become an astronaut, and while today I think the value of humans in space is overrated, I still carry a fascination with the findings of astronomers and the various robot spacecraft we have out there. It was a particular pleasure, therefore, to discover “The Astrochymist” (no, that’s not a typo) site, which is packed with resources for astrochemists and interested bystanders. The designer(s) of the site have put a lot of thought into it. Start with the astromolecule of the month. Move from there to the most intelligently designed FAQ I’ve ever seen on a website. Describing the FAQ won’t do—you’ve got to see it to appreciate it. Other highlights include a Who’s Who in astrochemistry, an updated publications list, conference info, links, and a news archive. Kudos to the designer(s).
