|“||The DeVicenzo-Steinhardt book is certainly not the best reference for quasicrystals (that's an understatement). I would recommend, for instance:
Location in 198x
The NPR article says he was at NIST in 1982, but his biography (http://materials.technion.ac.il/st/) says he was at Johns Hopkins at that time and at NIST a decade later. Zeev.tarantov (talk) 14:33, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Aerospace Research Laboratories??
In the lead paragraph, it says "Prof. Shechtman was an NRC fellow at the Aerospace Research Laboratories at Wright Patterson AFB, Ohio,... I can't find any other references to this lab. There is an Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright Patterson AFB (see related wikipedia article) 17:51, 5 October 2011 (UTC) ontomeister
The current organizational chart of the AFRL is from 1997. Before that, there existed the Wright Laboratory, part of which was the "Material Laboratory, Wright-Patterson AFB, OH". That sounds exactly like the kind of place where a materials science post doc would study high-tech aluminum alloys. The current organization has the "Materials and Manufacturing Directorate" which continues that work. Zeev.tarantov (talk) 12:26, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
Interesting photo should be on here for historical value: Schechtman's notebook (credit Iowa State?)

i found that the bbc article had errors,
if someone would like to append this article further, i recommend: http://news.sciencemag.org/sciencenow/2011/10/discoverer-of-impossible-crystal.html http://www.nature.com/news/2011/111005/full/news.2011.572.html

Congratulations . . . .
My heartfelt congratulations to Dr. Shechtman, and after reading his personal info on him and his distinguished family, I was wondering what the conversation must be like at the family dinner table? :-) Ineuw talk page on English Wikisource 22:29, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

The picture that is third from the top
- It is said to be "Al-Pd-Mn" and "Ag-Al". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 09:03, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
The quasi crystal section borrows quite liberally from the 14th cited source at the time of this writing.
The links to references #2, #7, #8 are broken, and the ninth reference just goes to the main page of the website it links to. Could someone please change them (I'll try to find some references, of course)? Thanks! NeutralWikipedia 01:18, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
