What is everything around us made of, and how did it get there? What arcane secrets hide in the modern alchemist's lab? Is there a hidden order to matter itself, known only to a select few? You hold in your hands the probably the smallest guide ever to the building blocks of the universe. This book is a lightning tour of things small, things invisible, and some things so minute and strange that no scientist is sure they actually exist.
