Atomic Microscopy

A device that can actually visualize a individual molecule and its parts. (Read the full article)

"The Bohr atom (like a miniture solar system) was not proposed until 1913. As far as I know the nucleus was not even discovered yet."

"This story passage also contains a mention of matter-energy equivalence that predates Einstein's famous E=mc^2 by a full decade. If my math is right, it's even within two orders of magnitude of the correct value! One gram's energy equivalent is enough to lift 1500 tons completely out of Earth's gravity; a grain is about 1/16th of a gram, depending on exactly which definition of grain, or enough to lift about 100 tons an arbitrary distance -- so it should be enough to lift well over 1000 tons by two miles, and the story says 100,000 tons."
