A regular feature was “Eye Stoppers”, which every month presented a page or two of striking images with brief descriptions. That’s what this Scanalyst topic is about: things you’ve seen that caught your eye and are worth sharing.
One author (James Chadwick), one page, one Nobel prize (1935). Later in 1932, Chadwick published a less tentative paper, “The Existence of a Neutron” in the Proceedings of the Royal Society A.

The mandir’s construction commenced in 2010. The mandir was built in the Nagaradi style using 68,000 cubic feet of Italian Carrara marble. The marble obtained from quarries in Europe was shipped to Rajasthan, India where hundreds of artisans carved the stones. After the finished pieces of stone were assembled in workshops, engineers sequentially numbered the pieces and shipped them to Robbinsville. Upon their arrival, the pieces were organized using the numbering system to facilitate the mandir’s construction.
The mandir was constructed primarily through the efforts of artisans and volunteers who provided an estimated 4.7 million human hours.
