MIRROR, MIRROR ON THE WALL

Life exists only as one mirror image! Playing macro (our heart on the left, our liver on the right), or micro (all proteins and nucleic acids), nature chooses just one. In Denmark vs Superbowl, a great organic chemist from Aarhus, Karl Anker Jørgensen, tell us how we, emulating and contending with nature, may control the making of one of the mirror-image forms of a molecule. And trumpeter and composer Poul Weis gives us his take on the mirror-image world in and around us.
