SK185 - Molecules, Medicines and Drugs

Great excitement when I got home on Friday night (or should that be Saturday morning) after a relaxing few drinks at our monthly choir social, and found a parcel waiting for me.

Despite the lateness of the hour, I had to rip open the box of materials for my new Open University course, amongst them a molecular modelling kit.

This little beastie is an aspirin molecule - black balls represent carbon, red ones are oxygen, and the white ones, hydrogen.

I'm impressed. Some folk would go for a real asprin after a night on the town, but Heron gets down to molecular level. That's commitment right there.

More toys! Where will all these books go? Sounds like an interesting course - good for keeping the grey cells active.
