Ten-year-old Kansas City fifth grader, Clara Lazen, has been published in a major chemistry journal. Why? Well, Clara was building molecules during science class and created something entirely new. Her teacher sent a picture of Clara's work to his chemist friend at Humboldt State University in California, who then published a paper about it in the January edition of Computational and Theoretical Chemistry.
According to the university notes:
If a synthetic chemist succeeded at creating the molecule - dubbed tetranitratoxycarbon for short - it could store energy, create a large explosion, or do something in between, Zoellner says: "Who knows?"
