Mass Spectrometry Can Be Fun

According to New Scientist Magazine "Mass Spectrometry may not sound like the most exciting scientific venture. Luckily for us ignoramuses, the Internet has a web site which shows we got it all wrong."

In the magazine's
Web Links section which categorizes the best science sites on the web, New Scientist describes www.i-mass.com as a good site for highlighting the importance of the field in astronomy, chemistry, biology, and many other sciences.

According to New Scientist writer Tormod Guldvog, mass spectrometry is "based on a simple (but originally rather esoteric) concept ... to analyze gases and chemical compounds by measuring ions in electric and magnetic fields. (www.i-mass.com) does a "good job when it comes to explaining what we need this technology for, including the history of mass spectrometry, famous people, quotes, and a book list. There are feature articles every month which shows the many uses of mass spectrometry"

He suggests, however, our pull-down menu bar is "not user friendly" but considers it "a minor quibble".

Not to quibble with you Tormod, but we think the pull-down navigation menu is one of the simplest yet most effective means to navigate a large web site like www.i-mass.com. We're going to keep it!
