A Visual Exploration of Every Known Atom in the UniverseBook - 2009
Includes a poster of Theodore Gray's iconic photographic periodic table of the elements!
Based on seven years of research and photography by Theodore Gray and Nick Mann, The Elements presents the most complete and visually arresting representation available to the naked eye of every atom in the universe. Organized sequentially by atomic number, every element is represented by a big beautiful photograph that most closely represents it in its purest form. Several additional photographs show each element in slightly altered forms or as used in various practical ways. Also included are fascinating stories of the elements, as well as data on the properties of each, including atomic number, atomic symbol, atomic weight, density, atomic radius, as well as scales for electron filling order, state of matter, and an atomic emission spectrum.
This of solid science and stunning artistic photographs is the perfect gift book for every sentient creature in the universe.
