atoms – Is there radioactivity at absolute zero?

The Question : 28 people think this question is useful Theoretically, will a radioactive material still be radioactive at absolute zero? What would happen at the lowest realistic temperatures we have ever achieved? Will radioactivity stop at absolute zero, since it is a nuclear phenomenon and nuclear motion slows down as we approach absolute zero

orbitals – How do I visualize an atom?

The Question : 37 people think this question is useful I have searched and searched, oh how I have searched. I am looking for a 3-dimensional visualization of a whole atom, one that that includes all the orbital geometry. A proper “layered” view of the orbitals. What I am not looking for: Individual orbital geometry.
