Little Doll-Shaped Molecules

Do you like science?
I've found this little doll-shaped molecules in Discover Magazine, who said science isn't funny?

When Jonathan Swift put pen to paper, he came up with Lilliputians. When chemists at Rice University got wacky with organic chemistry back in 2003, they came up with NanoPutians. These people-shaped molecules--a whole cast of them--are each synthesized using a string of chemical reactions. Click through to follow the life cycle of a NanoPutian as she grows from NanoToddler to NanoProfessional.

NanoToddler grows up, gets longer legs.

In the end, it's one big happy family…chained together.
