Journey into the Atom is a web site that makes learning about the atom and particle physics both easy and informative. The Journey is kind of a ride through a theme park with different stops along the way. Once you're done with the basics, you can go on to more advanced topics in particle physics. To continue on your journey into the world of the subatomic, click here, but please read the rest of this page before you do (at least the next paragraph).
A note on the navigation before you go: Not all pages of the site are reachable by the images at the top of the page. There will be pages that are only linked through these top level pages, like the Comments Board, which is linked at the bottom of every page, but the Journey instructions page is not linked from everywhere. Probably the best way to follow through this site is to use the "Previous"  and "Next"  arrows. If you need to get to a page quickly, try the Roadmap or the search engine.
If you find that some of the information on this site is erroneous, missing, or confusing, please e-mail the authors. We would also like any comments you may have about this website.
For technical questions or corrections or questions about the JavaTM used on this site please e-mail Rahul Jain.
If you have a question or correction involving the graphics or CGI scripting please e-mail Shaheen Gandhi.
If you would like to view others' comments on our site or would like to contribute your own views, please go to our Comments Board. If you are a ThinkQuest Competition Judge, it may be helpful for you to see our Site administration and logging module - it is open to public view. It was a big help while beta testing.
Of course, we couldn't do this whole site alone. Much of our knowledge comes from the books listed in the Individual Exploration page ("Explore" on the navigation bar.) Also, we have used a CGI Script that was not written by us, though we did do some editing. We thank Fluid Dynaimcs for use of the FREE AXS Site Logging CGI Script. Also, WebBBS (a free discussion board script) was written by Darryl Burgdorf. The search engine is also another free script that can be found on Selena Sol's Site. All JavaTM applets were created by Rahul Jain using only the JDK. The Journey into the Atom CGI was created by Shaheen Gandhi. Some information was taken from our textbooks: Chemistry by Steven Zumdahl and University Physics by Hugh D. Young.

This site was created and maintained partially with HomeSite 2.5a.
Graphics were created using Adobe Photoshop 4.0, Caligari trueSpace 3, Kai's Power Tools 3.0, Alien Skin Eye Candy 3.0, and Adobe Illustrator 7. NOTE: All portions of this site are best viewed in thousands+ colors, though 256 produces good-quality dithering.
We would finally like to add that this site is fully navigable in the Lynx WWW browser, something many sites can not boast :-)
