This is the last in the series: ‘Seven Scientific Theories’. Imagine you have been asked to provide one or two creative and inspirational illustrations for a textbook, on the periodic table of the elements. Blue fireworks (copper)? Orange neon signs? An exhausted runner panting at the end of the race (oxygen)? A meteor (iron)? The surface of the sun (hydrogen)? A stoker shovelling coal (carbon)? A fast jet's exhaust glowing orange (nickel)?
