Ch-15 Atomic Models
|. . .by studying spectral patterns and by conducting experiments, they were able to develop models of the atom.|

are we 'seeing' what is really there?

National Research Council (NRC) has recently announced the discovery
Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert. However, it can be detected as it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A minute amount of Governmentium causes one reaction to take over 4 days to complete when it would normally take less than a second.
has a normal half-life of 3 years; it does not decay, but instead undergoes
a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy
neutrons exchange places. In fact, Governmentium's mass will actually
increase over time, since each reorganization will cause some morons to
become neutrons, forming isodopes.
not the nucleus that counts. . .
it's the last few electrons that make all the difference.
