Atomic Theory

"I would rather have questions that can't be answered than answers that can't be questioned." - Richard Feynman. The video by Veritasium presents one of these questions, proposed by Feynman, along with his answer. It discusses the importance of the atomic theory and how without it we limit our knowledge of every other type of science.
