Atom – The Clash of the Titans – Part 1

This is the first part in a three part series (the others are available after the link) about what is claimed to be the most important discovery in the history of science – the atom. Its not a bad choice, that everything is provably made of exactly the same components is taken for granted but not obvious under scrutiny. For science fans this is a visual and intellectual feast. The fundamental nature of the premise creates an excuse for a sweeping tour through some of the most interesting co-ordinates in ‘ideaspace’. Some brain pie to gorge on this thanksgiving day.
