Have you ever seen an atom?

  • Published: 27 March 2013
  • Scientists at the University of California Los Angeles have found a way to create stunningly detailed 3D reconstructing of platinum nanoparticles at an atomic scale. These are being used to study tiny structural irregularities called dislocations.

        It would be quite weird if there was someone out there who never saw an atom...

                  But physics taught us atom is 99.9 percent empty space, so how could one can see that 0.01 of total area occupied by a single atom.

                                        You don't see the atoms, you see light that is fotons. Actually better, what you really see it's what your brain make up with the info she got, so what you see is your own brain activity translated by your mind.

                                                    that's not what an atom looks like, your limited by you apprentice. you may have the technology to photograph a bullet in flight but you never capture the vibratory motion of an atom

                                                          İt is known that atoms have kinetic energy in room temperature so they are always at movement so we need to reach 0 kelvin in order to see it; i.e. this is only my theory for still stable images

                                                                How does an atom evolves into a cell???

Atoms however is a thing, its actually a saying that denotes you're saying that is physical. So atoms is an eletron, protons & neutron no other name to it. Its the charges of molecules that made it into different kind of molecules. Then molecules will fuse together to form cells. Group of cells will form to form tissues...

We still yet to understand the invisible black energy in the space Just like how we still cant explains the invisible waves around the atom.

                                                                                  is any video available of atoms ?
                                                                                  if you can click picture its also possible to click video
                                                                                  i have a question

                                                                                  neutrons moves around nucleus so it must look like atoms are marching
                                                                                  for example see human march if you see them from distance there hand and legs moving its like syncing motion
                                                                                  see this
                                                                                  if its atom it must look like same because electrons moves around nucleus

                                                                                  2 nd
                                                                                  we can see world because photons are exist
                                                                                  we are so huge compared to atoms so its possible
                                                                                  A proton is about 1835 times more massive than an electron
                                                                                  means equal size of proton
                                                                                  proton diameter is around 0.001 pm atoms are around 100 pm different with different atoms
                                                                                  means around 316x316 photons are responsible to get this image of one atom
                                                                                  how its possible that atom loosing its 316x316 photons ( which is equal in size of proton ) every Milli seconds so that we can see it
