Glassy State
Glass is an amorphous (non-crystalline) solid material that exhibits a glass transition, which is the reversible transition in amorphous materials (or in amorphous regions within semicrystalline materials) from a hard and relatively brittle state into a molten or rubber-like state. Glasses are typically brittle and can be optically transparent. The most familiar type of glass, used for centuries in windows and drinking vessels, is soda-lime glass, composed of about 75% silica (SiO2) plus sodium oxide (Na2O) from soda ash, lime (CaO), and several minor additives. Often, the term glass is used in a restricted sense to refer to this specific use.
From the 19th century, various types of fancy glass started to become significant branches of the decorative arts. Objects made out of glass include not only traditional objects such as vessels (bowls, vases, bottles, and other containers), paperweights, marbles, beads, but an endless range of sculpture and installation art as well. Colored glass is often used, though sometimes the glass is painted, innumerable examples exist of the use of stained glass.
In science, however, the term glass is usually defined in a much wider sense, including every solid that possesses a non-crystalline (i.e. amorphous) structure and that exhibits a glass transition when heated towards the liquid state. In this wider sense, glasses can be made of quite different classes of materials: metallic alloys, ionic melts, aqueous solutions, molecular liquids, and polymers. For many applications (bottles, eyewear) polymer glasses (acrylic glass, polycarbonate, polyethylene terephthalate) are a lighter alternative to traditional silica glasses.

Architizer - Let's Hope Snøhetta's New Robotic Library At NC State Isn't Run By An Evil Super Computer
The Hunt library, designed by Snøhetta, serves as a centerpiece for NC State University's Centennial Campus, which the school has used for expansions since the 1970s to avoid disturbing the quads of its traditional neo-Georgian brick old campus. NC State University in Raleigh, North Carolina, just got a library that's larger than a football field. The James B. Hunt Jr. Library, which opened yesterday, operates not through traditional open stacks but via a subterranean robot called bookBot, which can deliver any of the library's 1.5 million books in under five minutes. With executive architect Pearce Brinkley Cease + Lee, Snøhetta worked out a robot-based design that packs in the learning—with a capacity of 2 million books, the building r...
