Feature: Three charged Americans -- The M. and M.'s of science. Feature: If you want something, go for it! -- Invisible bits of electricity. Feature: Charging on--to e -- Smaller than atoms? Subatomic? Is this a joke? -- Nobel Marie -- Mysterious rays -- Making waves -- Five papers -- Seeing the (photon) light. Feature: Blue skies smiling at us -- Molecules move -- Getting the picture right -- Getting atom. Feature: Atoms go from weight to number (periodic table). Feature: In the elemental grocery store -- Still shooting alpha particles -- Bohr taking quantum leaps -- An American tracks photons; a Frenchman nails matter -- What's uncertain? Everything, says Heisenberg -- A cat, quarks, and other quantum critters. Feature: Up and atom: a review of atomic theory basics -- Smashing atoms -- Chemistry, charisma, and peace.
