    Professor Sandra Faber has been a hero of mine for years not only for her groundbreaking work but for her wonderful enlightened ability to express that she does not know what the big picture is as far as the larger structure and nature of the universe goes. While others in science are busy celebrating that “we now know” the story of the universe, it’s near exacting origins and age, etc., making fools of themselves in my opinion, she has always been a shining light of brilliance, inspiration, and wisdom.

    This layer is just 0.2 mm thick and can, according to Just Mobile, wear with time if rubbed often. I didn’t have a chance to test the scratch resistance and auto-healing feature.
