When most people hear the word ozone, they think of what they often smell after a thunderstorm, when lightning has literally “supercharged” the air. Or, if they remember their high school science class, they think of the ozone layer as an invisible but protective “blanket” near (or at) the top of our atmosphere.

Ozone itself is […]
