  • The front cover artwork is provided by Long Zhao and Ralf I. Kaiser. The image shows the triphenylene molecule as a potential precursor to two-dimensional graphite nanosheets in the interstellar medium, which can be formed without entrance barrier at temperatures as low as 10 K in molecular clouds.
