In this three-part documentary series, Professor Jim Al-Khalili tells the story of one of the greatest scientific discoveries ever: that the material world is made up of atoms. First episode deals with the discovery of atoms and its impact on the scientific community, it also tackles the quantum mechanics of Heisenberg, and the problems Einstein had it with it. The next episode deals in the radioactivity, atom bomb and the big bang.
Finally, the last episode questions the nature of reality. How the composition of the atom made us rethink physical existence, giving a possibility to parallel universes and showing that empty space is far from empty.
