A century ago most people would not have recognized this sterling silver atom charm for what it is - a classic representation of an atom. But today most people know about atoms. We know everything is made up of atoms, that the center of the atom is called the nucleus, and is composed of the neutrons & protons; and that the nucleus is orbitted by super-speedy particles called electrons.
By wearing this atom charm, we celebrate nuclear physics, women in science, and the young girls & women out there who dream in atomic scale. But, if you're like most of us, just trying to think in atomic scale makes your brain fry!
Fun Facts: 1 - Atoms are mostly empty space. If an atom is the size of a sports arena, the nucleus would be the size of a pea. 2 - atoms are very small - about one-tenth of a billionth of a meter across. 3 - You have about 7 billion billion billion atoms in your body. Is your brain frying yet?
