Today's winner is: Ilona Sherman, 14, Beverly Hills, Calif. There was a time when such a question would be of concern only to scientists. Today we live in the "atomic age," and everybody knows that atoms and molecules are very important to us and can change our lives a great deal. A molecule is the smallest bit of substance that can exist and still keep all the properties of the whole. Let's take sugar as an example. Sugar has certain properties: taste, color, crystal form, solubility,. and so on. If we took a grain of sugar and kept dividing it and dividing it — a point would be reached where we no longer had sugar! What would we have! We would have the building blocks of the sugar molecule — Atoms. And in the case of sugar this would be carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. So a molecule consists of a certain combination of atoms. Some molecules are very simple in pattern. But some substances have many thousands of atoms in each molecule arranged in a complicated pattern. A molecule of water is made up of two atoms of hydrogen and one of oxygen. But a molecule of pure natural rubber is believed to contain about 75,000 carbon atoms and 120,000 hydrogen atoms! So molecules differ in size, shape, and in what they contain. Atoms, which make up the molecules, are quite complicated (things. Scientists still have only a rough idea about what an atom really is. Up to now, they have found more than 20 different particles in the core of the atom, including electrons, protons, neutrons, positrons, neutrinos, mesons, and hyperons. Electrons are tiny particles, each with a tiny negative charge of electricity. The proton is a particle about 1,836 times as heavy as the electron — but still so tiny it cannot be seen, even under the most powerful telescope. The other particles each have a different size and characteristic. Atoms have weight too. For example, an atom of iron is 55 times as heavy as an atom of hydrogen. And a single atom of hydrogen weighs only about one million- million-million-millionth of a gram! What goes on inside an atom, the details of its structure, all thi remains one of the great myster ies of the universe. FUN TIME The Chuckle Box 'Iceland is about the same siz as Siam," said the teacher. "Iceland," wrote Charlie on his test paper," "is about the same siz as my teacher." The nurse entered the absent minded professor's study and sail softly: "It's a boy, Sir." The professor looked up: "Well, wha does it want?" EXTRA PRIZE!
