Chemistry really can be fun!
Hey, all you science freaks out there. Thursday is Mole Day. No, not the blind creature that burrows underground, and not the kind that grows on your body. It is the common chemistry unit of measurement representing the number of atoms in a substance. The number, 6.02 x 1023, was discovered by chemist Amedeo Avogadro, and is celebrated each year from 6:02 a.m. to 6:02 p.m. Oct. 23, or 10/23. Check out www.moleday.org for more information on this wacky holiday that was started to foster an interest in chemistry.
