We think science is inspirational. Here at Diamond, we produce a light brighter than the sun that allows us to make discoveries in all areas of science, from discovering new drugs to treating diseases, creating new materials to building amazing machines, and uncovering the secrets inside meteors and comet dust.
Light Reading is our way of encouraging creativity inspired by our science. In 2011 we ran a short story writing competition for adults, looking for submissions of 3,000 words, or of 300 words or less in our flash fiction sub competition. In 2012 we asked school students to take up the challenge - where will our science take them?
‘Lambelasma, That is My Name’, written by Christy Flora Au is the winning story of the Light Reading 2013 competition.
