     Indestructible Atoms

    Chemical analysis and synthesis go no farther than to the separation of particles one from another, and to their reunion. No new creation or destruction of matter is within the reach of chemical agency. We might as well attempt to introduce a new planet into the solar system, or to annihilate one already in existence, as to create or destroy a particle of hydrogen.

    To destroy an atom of Hydrogen would be like trying to introduce a new planet to the solar system.
