cover: This eroded basalt formation lies on the edge of the Giant’s Causeway, on the coast of Northern Ireland. Nearby are tall hexagonal pillars created by the advance of crack networks; relatively safe from erosion, they form the imagined road traveled by giants. The article by Lucas Goehring and Stephen W. Morris on page 39 offers a more expansive view of the causeway showing the large pillars, describes how such pillars form, and explains the related physics behind two-dimensional crack patterns.
