        Atom Builder

        Building a carbon atom from scratch, using subatomic particles as building blocks, is simply not something humans can do. Even with the most powerful microscopes, we cannot see subatomic particles, much less manipulate them. This interactive activity from NOVA provides users with a good approximation of what it would be like to build an atom if we could do it, and in the process demonstrates how ions and radioactive materials come to be. Requires Adobe Shockwave Player.
