Abstract

The way we work, indeed, our entire industrial civilization, depends upon materials. We have long used noncrystalline solids in the form of glasses for their passive properties, such as their inertness, transparency, and in everyday use as containers. They are artifacts of an ancient time, not only on earth but in the heavens—on the moon glassy materials are widespread.
