This interactive presentation introduces users to particle physics. There is a discussion of the history of the study of what matter is made of, the current way scientists visualize the atom, and the size of the atom. It also describes the search for the 'fundamental' particle and the development of the Standard Model, which explains what the world is and what holds it together. There are also brief ...
