This project was 100% a brain-child of creating “contacts”, as Bhala, who I had worked with one summer invited me to join him for a research trip to the synchrotron facility in Taiwan. A month-long stay here was a completely surreal experience, as anyone who has done night shifts at a synchrotron trips can attest to. I will always cherish (and expectantly look forward to having a repeat of) the memories of midnight/early morning trips to grocery stores, my interactions will the astrobiologist Rebecca (Dr. Rebecca Thombre), and the midnight eve at Taipei 101.
