One ChemActivity down, a bunch to go.
Today we developed what we need for the structure of the atom, but just as important, we continued to discuss how we connect our conclusions to underlying data and models. We thereby develop explanations that are, we hope, convincing to others. While it might seem nice for scientific conclusions to be so obvious that all we have to do is pass them on from generation to generation, that would also be pretty boring. We choose then to work on both the process for developing scientific knowledge as well as the knowledge itself.
