Question

Can you see or accurately visualise sub atomic particles or are they known only by maths and/or inference?

Answer

Martin - You can see a nucleus and the nucleus of a hydrogen atom is a proton which is the same. You can't see below that at least with a source of neutrons that ISIS produce, but you can see down to the level of the proton.
