Crash Course Chemistry #37 - The History of Atomic Chemistry
How did we get here? Well, in terms of Atomic Chemistry, Hank takes us on a tour of the folks that were part of the long chain of other folks who helped us get to these deeper understandings of the world. From Leucippus to Heisenberg to you - yes, YOU - the story of Atomic Chemistry is all wibbly-wobbly… and amazing.

WE NEED THIS HERE!!!!
This is one of the best things the world has done.
We should talk more about the time the Wenatchee Wild’s assistant Coach took a pair of sunglasses from the crowd and an upside down hockey stick and ran around the ice doing a “Blind Ref” imitation after disagreeing with one of the officiating calls. (x)
Incredible 3D Drawing Illusions
Italian artist Alessandro Diddi uses the simple mediums of pencil and paper to create incredible anamorphic pencil drawings that look completely three dimensional. The illusions appear when the drawings are viewed from a particular angle and then they appear to pop right out of the page. The drawings are intentionally distorted to create the spacial and dimensional illusions. Diddi states, “I want my drawings to put across the message that the eye can trick the mind and make you believe that there are dimensions that are not really there.” From this point of view, the artist has definitely achieved his desired effect. These images are amazingly real.
My brain can not comprehend
I’M SO ANGRY ABOUT THIS
O DON’T UNDERSTAND!?!?!?! WHAT!! HOW!!!?!?!/!?!! WHY!!!!!!!!!
The Periodic Table As Underground Map
The periodic table is really a wonderful thing. So simple, yet so dense with information. At the moment it was thought up by Dmitri Mendeleev in 1869, even though a majority of the elements that we know of today hadn’t been discovered, their place was already set at (or rather on) the table. The arrangement of periods and groups immediately relates like with like, and illustrates atomic differences in a simple table.
But it doesn’t illustrate all the relationships, which is why many alternative periodic tables have been proposed. Mark Lorch’s periodic table Underground map is the latest artistic entry into that category.
New relationships come to light: Life depends mostly on the downtown turquoise line, and there’s a new connector train between the metals mercury and gallium, thanks to their liquid properties at certain temperatures.
