Some Fundamentals of Mineralogy and Geochemistry This website makes available some one-page explanations of fundamental ideas in mineralogy and geochemistry. The individual documents are designed as stand-alone explanations or illustrations, and they can be used as course handouts or as Powerpoint illustrations. Virtually all of the individual documents provided here involve graphic presentations or explanations of ideas that are intended to make concepts more accessible to students.

Through the use of infographics that simply and clearly illustrated a lot of information, people could easily take a brief look at one infographic and even without looking closer grasp that we've managed to send a lot of things and people to the moon for example, and looking closer they could see that China has plans for a manned lunar mission within the next few years, for example.
