Do you see that tiny speck of a blue dot?  Unbelievably, you are looking at a single-positively charged atom!  This amazing image recently won the 2018 Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council science photography competition. What isn’t visible to the naked eye is lead dust!  Be Safe!  Use Clean-All Heavy Metals Hand & Body Soap!
