Grand Designs: Symmetry's hidden depths An article in the New Scientist about the award of the Abel Prize 2008 to John Thompson and Jacques Tits for their amazing contribution to the classification of finite simple groups.
There is also a New Scientist competition running alongside the article to name one of the symmetrical objects that I have created. Come up the best suggestion and you could win the group! There is an interesting debate about the name going on at the New Scientist bulletin board.
