About This Item: 
Journey into an unseen world--and to the frontiers of human knowledge Welcome to Atom Land, the impossibly small world of quantum physics With award-winning physicist Jon Butterworth as your guide, you'll set sail from Port Electron in search of strange and new terrain Each discovery will expand the horizons of your trusty map--from the Hadron Island to the Isle of Quarks and beyond Just beware of Dark Energy and other sea monsters! A masterful work of metaphor, Atom Land also gives form to the forces that shape the universe: Electromagnetism is a highway system, the strong force, a railway, the weak force, an airline But, like Butterworth, you may find that curiosity is the strongest force of them all--one that pulls you across the subatomic seas, toward the unknown realm of Antimatter, and to the very outer reaches of the cosmos
