Jan. 30 --WHAT -- It's time to get small. Nobel Prize winner and Florida State University professor Harold Kroto (pictured) will talk about his work in chemistry and buckminsterfullerene, a form of pure carbon better known as "buckyballs," at Orlando Science Center . His co-discovery of buckyballs landed him the Nobel, and that helped open up the field of nanotechnology. His talk dovetails with the science center's newest traveling exhibit, "Zoom Into Nano," which explores how scientists make too-tiny-to-be-seen objects. Also at the museum: the National Geographic film "Mysteries of the Unseen World 3D." WHEN: 1 p.m. Saturday WHERE: 777 E. Princeton St. , Orlando COST: Included in science-center admission of $19 ( $13 for ages 3-11). CALL: 407-514-2000 ONLINE: OSC.org ___ (c)2014 The Orlando Sentinel (Orlando, Fla.)
