Cloud Chamber - This I thought was the most impressive thing in the museum, even if it wasn’t much to look at (or to photograph). Inside the tank was some kind of alcohol vapor that reacted with atomic particles that struck it. You can see little white streaks in there, which kept appearing, fading, the new ones appeared. I wish I took a video. It showed the how particles are passing through everything, including us, all the time.
