(1) If it were a little more curved it would collapse, imploding on itself in a cosmic crunch; a little less curved, and every star, planet, sun and galaxy would fly apart from each other and so would every atom of matter in each of them.(2) Leibniz, meanwhile, believed every atom in the universe to have a soul, the universe being a projection through them of God's will, like a cosmic hologram.(3) But they know me, every atom of my body, every hair on my head, and they pull me, each one of them, like a multitude of collapsed stars pulling all surrounding light into them forever.(4) I shall not have one atom of strength left(5) As early as 1991 Japanese researchers discovered that carbon atoms can form tiny tubes whose walls are just one atom thick.(6) As can be seen, each silicon atom bonds together with four of its neighbors to form a rigid crystal structure.(7) He was their property, heart and soul, body and blood; what they did claimed every atom of him, sleeping and waking; it colored life and dictated the terms of death.(8) In 1900 nobody could have anticipated 80% of France's electrical power would come from a source not known at that time: the atom .(9) Polychlorinated dibenzodioxin is 10 times more potent a toxin than hexachlorodibenzodioxin, even though the difference is just one chlorine atom .(10) Bacteria that can break down chlorinated compounds have been known for years, but none that could remove the last chlorine atom to complete the detoxification.(11) the power of the atom(12) America rose up and rebelled, and then expanded in power until it tipped the balance during World War One and harnessed the power of the atom to win World War Two.(13) Instead I just stood and stared at the sign and remembered their halcyon days when I loved them with every atom of my being.(14) Bohr and Heisenberg are among the first to realize that in splitting the atom mankind has acquired the power to destroy itself.(15) Each radium atom is decaying into four more alpha-emitting radionuclides, creating in all 12,500 particles.(16) Staring at the endless universe, looking at the twinkling stars and pondering the infinitesimally tiny atom of matter or the gene that makes us up, helps to put issues of religion in true perspective.
