I’ve always seen the diagrams in chemistry class and just thought that it was a simple way to visualize a complex reality.  Apparently, it’s really just a diagram of reality.

I can’t even begin to describe how cool this is to me.  And I’m not even a science guy.

    Yeah, an actual PHOTOGRAPH of a molecule. What was always there, but had to be drawn through guesswork.

    Of course, atoms are next. And particles.

    This world is not an accident.
