Eight allotropes of carbon: a) Diamond, b) Graphite, c)Lonsdaleite, d) C60 (Buckminsterfullerene or buckyball), e) C540, f) C70, g) Amorphous carbon, and h) single-walledcarbon nanotube or buckytube.
Carbon is capable of forming many allotropes due to its valency. Well known forms of carbon include diamond and graphite. In recent decades many more allotropes and forms of carbon have been discovered and researched including ball shapes such asbuckminsterfullerene and sheets such as graphene. Larger scale structures of carbon include nanotubes, nanobuds and nanoribbons. Other unusual forms of carbon exist at very high temperature or extreme pressures.

2014 is UNESCO’s International Year of Crystallography - the science that has revealed the double-helix structure of DNA, improved medicine and was even used in the artwork of M. C. Escher. The home of crystallography in Australia, ANSTO, has created a microsite that explains how the science works and how it’s being used in groundbreaking research today.

A bizarre new bug resembling the major 90s toy craze Troll Dolls has baffled scientists. Teams from the University of Harvard and museums around the world trekked for three weeks to explore the untouched rainforest of southeast Suriname. They managed to catalogue 60 new animal species - but one little critter has proved too tricky to record. The 7mm wide, six-legged bug has been whittled down to possibly fitting into four nymph families: Dictyopharidae, Nogodinidae, Lophopidae, and Tropiduchidae.

High-magnification cross section of an aloe plant
Aloe has been used for thousands of years—tracing all the way back to Egypt 6,000 years ago—to heal wounds and burns. This particular micrograph shows cells from Aloe erinacea, an aloe plant native to Namibia that is endangered due to habitat loss. Large, blue cells in the center are called xylem: they conduct water from the roots to the leaves. The small, circular clusters of cells are called phloem: they transport food made by the leaves to the rest of the plant.
