Pear-Shaped Atom Points To A Cosmic Mystery
“An atom is comprised of dense nucleus of protons and neutrons surrounded by a diffuse cloud of electrons. Since an atomic nucleus is held together by the strong force, similar to the way gravity holds stars and planets together, you would think nuclei would be basically spherical. This isn't always the case, and a few such as barium-144 are even pear shaped. ”
Physicists Have Confirmed a Pear-Shaped Nucleus, And It Could Ruin Time Travel Forever
“Physicists have confirmed the existence of a new form of atomic nuclei, and the fact that it's not symmetrical challenges the fundamental theories of physics that explain our Universe.”
The Development Of The Atomic Model
“Science (or scientists) build a model. If new evidence comes along, the model gets changed.”
