Mogster writes with this news from New Zealand: “‘University of Otago scientists have made a ‘major physics breakthrough’ with the development of a technique to consistently isolate and capture a fast-moving single atom. A team of four researchers from the university’s physics department are believed to be the first to isolate and photograph the Rubidium 85 atom.’ Good to see Kiwis following in Rutherford’s footsteps.”
