Studies of the motion at atomic-scale resolution provide a telescopic view of the molecular world. More information about this fascinating topic is described by A. H. Zewail in his Nobel Lecture on page 2586 ff. It is quite fitting that at the back of this issue is the inaugural issue of ChemPhysChem, announced in earlier editorials.
