The United Nations declared 2022 as the International Year of Glass.
But glass still has such an important role in modern society that the
United Nations felt it important to celebrate this role. Glass is in
our drinking glasses, smartphones, touchscreens, solar panels, wind
turbines, telescopes and many other things that we use on a daily basis.
Tiny spiral etchings on fibre optic cables allow light to spread more
easily along the surface so that data works more effectively.
So next time you think glass is just something everyday to drink your water out of – think again!
