~ Atom Smasher refers to the colliders used to smash particles together at high speeds to learn more about them. It also refers to a quote from Kurt Vonnegut's novel Bluebeard: "Before he went to sleep the other night, he said that he could not help being what he was, for good or ill, that he was "that sort of molecule." "Until the Great Atom Smasher comes to get me ... this is the kind of molecule I have to be."

~ The main circular image in this design is a photo of "one of the first full-energy collisions between gold ions at Brookhaven National Laboratory's Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider ... The tracks indicate the paths taken by thousands of subatomic particles produced in the collisions"
